The Book by Book Adult Summer Reading Program supports the library’s goal of creating a city of readers and lifelong learners by encouraging adults to read based on their interests, visit the library during the summer, and model positive reading habits. Past program participants have shared that the program helped reignite their passion for reading with the added benefit of fun prizes!

A special thank you to our 2019 prize sponsors!
