Summer Reading Program for Adults

Summer Reading is not just for kids.  The Whitman Public Library is encouraging adults to Build a Better World Read!

We have several ways to win.  We have four ways to win for adults.  One is read a book and ask a staff person for a raffle ticket.  Two is attend a library program make sure to ask for a raffle ticket at the end of the program (yes parents it counts if you bring your children to a library program). Three is ask a staff person for an Adult Summer Reading Bingo Board. Get any five spaces get a raffle ticket fill the whole board get two raffle tickets.  Finally for every book review you fill out you will get a raffle ticket. 

We will have weekly drawings of a bag of books every Friday starting July 7 until August 11.
