Escape the Ordinary (Adult Program)
The adult summer reading program is designed to encourage adults to read during the summer months while creating positive publicity for the library. Over the summer, adults can explore new genres or interests which gives the library the opportunity to highlight books of interest. The adult summer reading program also offers an excellent model of lifelong learning and reading to the children participating in their own summer reading programs.
