Greenfield Library Link

Summer Reading Adventure is here. Summer reading is for all ages 1- 111. Vacation time is a great time for some down time with a book. We’ve gotten lots of good new books so stop in, grab a book, and enjoy summer.

Summer Reading Adventure is a fun time at the library. This year our theme is “Get in the Game…Read!” It’s an exciting theme focusing on sports. At signup, children will receive a bookbag, bookmark, a reading log, and a tattoo. They will then receive prizes along the way and many coupons at summer’s end. They also have an activity section and when completed their name goes into a drawing for a new bicycle complements of Adena Healthy Kids.

Teens also have a reading and activity log. When the reading log is finished their name will go into the drawing for end of summer prizes. When the activity log is finished, their name goes into a drawing for a new bicycle, also complements of Adena.

Adults also sign up and each time they check out and read a book, they will put in a drawing slip for an end of the summer prize drawing.

Everyone looks forward to Summer Reading and this summer will be great. You can sign up anytime during June and July.
