Summer and the TBR List

Finally, it’s summer!  For the most part, all of our library book groups are on hiatus over the summer.  That means that librarians now have more time to read titles according to their whims and can start to tackle their toppling TBR (To Be Read) lists or piles.  Here are a few titles librarians at the Nevins Library can’t wait to read this summer:

Summer Reading isn’t just for kids!

It is true that most of the time, when talking about “Summer Reading”, we are talking about the books & projects our students complete over the summer for school.  But this isn’t one of those times.  We believe that Summer Reading can be fun, and we can include adults in that fun!  And don’t worry, there are no project assignments.

Right now, if you head to our Main Desk, you can sign up for our Summer Reading Program for Adults.  Between now and mid-August, all you would need to do (once you’ve signed up), is come in and log a book you read or listened to during the week and you’ll get a raffle ticket!  We draw a winner every Monday for six weeks.  The winner receives a $25 gift card to a local establishment.  It is really that easy! Please let us know if you have any questions – we’re happy to help!

Many thanks to the Friends of the Library for supporting our Summer Reading Program.
