Have Book–Will Travel!
Summer book clubs are your passport to a world of reading and rewards!
Programs for all ages run through Wednesday, August 7.
Adult Itinerary (college-age and older)
Your reading journey starts as you pick up a book log at the Reader Services desk, and keep track of what you are reading (books, ebooks, audiobooks, etc.). You may sign in once a week for a coupon from one of our sponsors and an entry into our weekly and Grand Prize Drawings.
Need help planning your trip? Think of our Librarians as travel agents who are happy
to help you find a “novel” destination.
Thanks to our sponsors and partners who have provided gift and entertainment coupons. Book your next trip to the Library and join Summer Reading!
Weekly Trivia Contests:

Young Adult Destinations
Readers finishing grades 6–12 may register in Adult or Youth Services. Read or listen to books to earn a t-shirt, Cougars game pass or paperback book! Receive coupons and enter weekly drawings when you sign in. Enjoy a reading exploration!
Kids Travel Guide
Books can take you anywhere! Five age-based book clubs take you on fantastic adventures around the world. Infants, preschool children and elementary students may register in Youth Services at the Book Club Desk. Read, listen and/or download books, then check-in with your book log to be entered in the Grand Prize Drawings. More information.
We welcome students with special needs and invite parents to talk with us so that we may customize book club levels for your child.
