2016 Adult Summer Reading Club
Sign Up Starting May 31
at any Tippecanoe County Public Library Location
Read through July 31
Celebrate summer with the Adult Summer Reading Club! This year's theme is "Ready, Set, Read". Join us as we explore fitness, sports, and the outdoors.
How Does It Work?
Sign up for SRC at the information desk at any TCPL location. You will receive a reading record to keep track of how long you spend reading between then and July 31. Whenever you come in to the library, stop by the information desk with your records and get it stamped for every four hours you have read. Each stamp enters you into our final prize drawing. On August 1, 40 winning entries will be selected at random. Remember, all records must be stamped by 9:00 p.m. on July 31 to count. These prizes are made possible by our local sponsors.
What Can I Read?
Almost anything you want! You don't have to limit yourself to literature or comics. Fiction or nonfiction, print or ebook, newspapers or magazines - just get out there and read! Keep track of how many hours you spend reading and mark it off on your reading record.
If you have kids, don't forget to encourage them to sign up for the Youth or Teen Reading Clubs as well.
