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 intersts which gives the library the opportunity to highlight books of interest. The adult summer reading program also offers and excellent model of lifelong learning and reading to the children participating in their own summer reading programs.
The 2018 Summer Reading theme is Libraries Rock! Public libraries receive manuals from the Collaborative Summer Learning Program through their youth services staff, which also include adult summer reading themed clipart, program ideas and materials available for purchase. Adult summer reading participants may earn coupons for free admission to RI attractions. To add your library to the list of participating programs or to receive coupons for your participants, please contact Nicolette Baffoni.
