Summer Reading Fun for adults

Take the plunge and read 3 books this summer! Dip into reading and earn a coffee and muffin at A Latte More!
Why should kids have all the fun this summer? Our adult reading program is your invitation to fun, too.

Read three books between June 27 and August 24, and fill out an entry form. Your first (and only your first) entry entitles you to a "Library Libation"at A Latte More here in Middlebury. All entry forms are entered into a drawing for a chance to win a "Bibliophile Basket"or a "Book lover's Basket". These will be a laundry baskets filled with absolute essentials (goodies, books, coffees, socks, etc.) for your comfort when reading! Drawings will be on July 29 and August 25.
The more you read, the more entries you can submit- the better chance you will have to win a basket!
Starting June 27, come into the library to pick up a certificate and begin reading!
You must be 21 or older to participate.
