Adult Summer Reading Program Opening Day
10:00 am, Monday, June 10: Opening day of the Adult Summer Reading Program
Why let kids have all the fun? Join the Adult Summer Reading Program at Hackley Public Library. For each book you read (or listen to: audio books count too!) you can put your name into a weekly drawing.

The Grand Prize is a 90 Minute Massage from Keep in Touch Massage.

How does it work?
1. Sign up for the program at the Circulation Desk starting on Monday, June 10.
2. Read or listen to a book (or two or three!) from the Library (eBooks from our collection count!).
3. Fill out a form for each book, indicate the prize you want, and put it in the drawing jar. The first 200 who fill out a form will get a special gift.
5. At the end of August we will draw names for each prize, and from all the entries for a grand prize.
Optional: You may write a short review of the book you read that we will post on our website. We will not include your name with the book review.
No reading logs, no minimum number of books to read. Read what you want and as often as you want. The more you read, the better your chances of winning!

Last year over 350 people participated in the program. Be part of the fun!
