Summer Reading Begins on June 14

On June 14 we’re leaving on a jet plane! Our bags are packed and we’ve included some of the best books from around the world for this year’s summer reading program. The program for adults runs from Saturday, June 14- Saturday, August 9. Join us for our annual kickoff party complete with summertime treats on June 14. Sign up then or at your earliest convenience. After reading six books the official program prize is yours. Make sure to enter our drawing for each book you read (two winners are chosen every week). We’re also giving out free video rental coupons good at the library for every book read. Two grand prizes will be awarded as the program concludes on August 9. Booklists from around the world (and maybe a list of Chicago books to keep you from feeling homesick) will be on hand so you won’t be caught without a good book to read on your travels this summer!
