OWL Reads! 2nd Annual Adult Summer Reading Program


Jun 20, 2018 to Aug 15, 2018
09:00 AM until 09:00 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Join in the fun this summer as we challenge you to OWL Reads! Challenge yourself to read six to nine books this summer!

How to participate? Beginning June 20th come to OWL to sign up and pick up your challenge card. For every book you read, you will be entered to win our book-lover’s prize basket.

Select which option:  We listened to your feedback from last year and are now offering two options to participate! 

Option 1: Category-Free Challenge Card:  For this option, we challenge you to read six to nine books this summer. You select whatever books you want! The challenge is simply READ!

Option 2: Genre Challenge Card: For this option, we have selected nine reading categories. You need to read a book that fits within our pre-selected challenge categories: book set in a bookshop or library, novel based on a historical figure/event, memoir/biography, book about a crime/mystery, book about nature, book with an ugly cover, and three “free” reader’s choice categories.

Bonus:  When you attend one of our events, you may count that event as meeting that genre challenge category. See the following pages in our newsletter for our events and what genre category it would fulfill.

PLUS! All summer, we will have fun displays, staff book talks, events and more!  Browse on your own or let us help you choose books to meet your personal summer reading challenge!

CELEBRATE: If you complete six or more challenge categories, you will be invited to an Exclusive After-Hours Celebration Gathering at OWL on Monday, August 20 at 7 PM featuring book sharing, trivia, ice cream and more!
