2016 Adult Summer Reading Program

June 13th - July 31st

Remember 2015's Adult Summer Reading Program's "Blind Date with a Book"? The books wrapped in brown paper with descriptions enticing readers to pick just the right book for a blind date were hugely popular with avid readers throughout the summer last year. So by popular request again this summer, OCPL offers another program with mysteriously wrapped books. This year the books will be in bags which are stapled shut so readers must select their picks by reading the attached description.

OCPL 2016 Adult Summer Reading ProgramThis year's theme is the same as the Children's Summer Reading Program's, On Your Mark, Get Set…READ! and highlights reading categories for all five rings of the Olympics. The five categories are: books by West Virginia authors; books which were made into movies; classic reads; prize-winning books; and biographies/memoirs. Books from all categories are displayed on the Adult Summer Reading table located near the Reference Desk in the Library. Each book is bagged with the appropriate color flag attached with the book's description to help readers select the perfect summer read.

No registration is required.

Participants will keep a Reading Log which may be picked up at OCPL's Circulation Desk or downloaded here: ▶ OCPL 2016 Adult Summer Reading Log (pdf)

Prizes:   Readers can win prizes! Like the Olympics, Bronze, Silver and Gold prizes will be awarded to participants based on various criteria outlined in the flyer above. In addition, every reader who reads four books will receive a prize.

Increase your reading fitness and get in shape this summer by participating in OCPL's Adult Summer Reading Program!

We look forward to seeing you enter "training" here at OCPL this summer!
