Summer Reading Programs

Every year between June and September, you can take part in one of our summer reading programs!  We’ve got ’em for adults, teens and children.

It’s not summer?  Come on down to the library and grab a good book and a cup of tea or coffee.  There may be no fall or winter program, but you can still enjoy reading.

2017 Summer Adult Reading Program

The Summer Reading Challenge is a fun way to stretch your reading habits by selecting books from different genres. The program begins on June 26th and runs through August 26nd.

Adults 18 and older with a current C/WMARS library card can visit the library to register at the circulation desk. The goal is to read one title from each of the 10 genres listed on the challenge. For each book read, participants will receive one raffle ticket to enter in the raffle of their choice. Books read in any format qualify, and participants may complete one or all ten challenges. After completing a challenge, raffle tickets may be picked up at the circulation desk.  It’s fun and the prizes are great. Visit the library to sign up and view the prize display. Happy Reading!

You must be 18 years or older to participate.
Sci Fi, Romance, Adventure and more.
Be sure to mark off the ones you’ve completed!
