Adult Summer Reading Challenge

It’s Easy!

  • Pick up a Summer Reading Challenge bookmark at the circulation desk
  • Read any book on the Great American Read list
  • Write the name of the book on the bookmark
  • Return your bookmark to the summer reading desk
  • Earn a ticket to vote for your favorite charity!

The charity with the most tickets at the end of the summer will receive a $75  donation.

And vote for your favorite on the Great American Read bulletin board(located in the library’s front hallway). All you have to do is put a push pin under your favorite book. When the Read is over in the fall, we’ll count up the votes and announce the Durham winner!
