Adult Summer Reading 2015
Schenectady County Public Library
How Summer Reading Works
Why should kids have all the summer reading fun? We have lined up some fun programs and incentives just for adults :)
How to join in on the fun:1. Stop by any SCPL branch between June 22-August 29 to register (ages 18+)
2. Your library will give you book summary slips. You can fill out book review slips for both non-fiction and fiction books. They can be ebooks, print books, or audiobooks.
3. Return your Book Summary Slips to the library and you will be entered into a drawing for that branch's gift basket (these are on view in your branch.) Selected reviews will be posted on our social media pages.
4. Attend great free programs all summer long at the library. Some will even have free giveaways and will get you an extra raffle ticket for our Kindle Fire HD 7 drawing.
