Boulder City, NV

Adult Summer Reading Program

Embedded GR SloganThis year’s theme is Ground Breaking reads. You can get entries by listening to or reading a book AND by coming to our events!

Reading Program Entries:

1. Read or listen to a book.

2. Fill out an entry slip and tell us why the book was Groundbreaking to you. (Was it the first book you read by that author?  Did someone dig in the ground?  Was it a classic novel, the first of it’s kind?  Be creative, we’ll accept anything, but you get good karma points for amusing us.)  Entry slips will be available at the main circulation desk starting June 6th.

3. Turn in the entry slip at the Reference Desk.

Additional Entries

Additional entry slips will be available at Adult Programs over the summer.  These include movies, tech classes, and library board of trustees meetings.  The complete list is on the back of this page.  For each event you attend, you can receive one entry.

Drawings

You can enter as many books and programs as you wish, but can only win one prize per drawing.

Entry deadlines are Fridays June 14th and 28th, July 12th and 26th, & Aug 9th at 5pm.
