Summer Reading is almost here. Starting June 1, stop by your local Adams County Public Library to sign up, read books, and earn prizes. The library invites kids, teens, and adults to participate in this year’s program, which runs from June 1 through July 31. Pick up a Summer Reading packet at the library’s desk. Keep track of your reading in a log booklet to meet reading goals and earn prizes, including new books, T-shirts, coupons to local businesses, totes, and more. Complete your reading goal for a chance to win the Grand Prize Drawing. This year’s grand prizes include Kindle Fires, Android tablets, a Fitbit One activity tracker, a bicycle, Kings Island and Reds ballgame tickets, and more. To earn additional prizes, complete reading activities like “read aloud to someone” or “read a book outside,” and keep score in your log booklet. Bring your log booklet to the library desk to receive your prize.

Each library is hosting Summer Reading activities every week.
