This year’s theme for the Adult Summer Reading Club is “Escape the Ordinary.” Adults of all ages, including young adults in high school, may participate in the Adult Summer Reading Club by reading books and participating in optional “challenges” that can be completed individually at home.
Weekly drawings for a FBCL tote bag, and a choice between vouchers for a $5 credit for fines or a $5 credit towards a purchase at the Friends of the Library Book Store, will take place throughout June and July at each branch library for readers who log in and record their reading time each week. Readers who complete “challenges” will earn additional entries into the weekly drawings. The first drawing will take place on June 8.
The names of participants who complete at least 10 hours (600 minutes) of reading will be entered into a drawing for a $25-gift card – donated by the Friends of the library -- that will be awarded to one lucky reader at each branch library in a drawing that will take place on July 27.
An ultimate grand prize will be awarded to one lucky reader in the library system. Participants in the Adult Summer Reading Club who complete the program by reading for 10 hours (600 minutes) will be entered into a drawing for a NOOK™ eReader, which will be awarded to one winner in the library system on July 27.
The Adult Summer Reading Club is sponsored by Fort Bend County Libraries and the Friends organizations that support the county library system. In addition to being sponsored by FBCL and the Friends, the Children’s and Teens’ Summer Reading Clubs are also sponsored by the Collaborative Summer Library Program, a consortium of states working together to provide high-quality children’s summer-reading program materials for public libraries.
