Be Novel – Branch Out

Be Novel – Branch Out

June 1 – August 8, 2020

The theme of the 2020 adult summer reading program is Be Novel – Branch Out.  Branching out can mean different things to different people. Maybe it is reading a genre that you haven’t yet delved into, or a switch from fiction to nonfiction. The summer is wide-open to everyone’s approach to reading!

As in past years, we will have weekly drawings for gift cards. All you need to do is read a book (any book), and complete an entry below to win.
