Adult summer reading
Manchester - posted Jun, 14 2013
MANCHESTER - The Adult Summer Reading 2013 is beginning soon at the Manchester Public Library. New this year is online registration and logging of books read or listened to. The Connecticut State Library is providing public libraries with this service. Those without access to a computer or mobile device may register and log their reading in either the Mary Cheney or Whiton buildings. Staff is available to help. Participation offers the possibility of earning rewards. Fifty polo shirts with the READiscover logo will be awarded in a random raffle drawing to those who register early. Titles logged earn entries into weekly raffle drawings of reusable tote bags also with the READiscover logo and donated by the Friends of the Library. The end of the program brings a grand prize raffle drawing. The more titles logged, the more chances one has to win one-of-three Nook™ e-readers donated by the Friends or Jorgensen Theater gift certificates. On Aug. 12, Joe Camposeo uncovers the genealogical treasures that can be found in the Town Clerk's office. Local band, Little Ugly, will perform in the annual Adult Services outdoor (weather permitting) concert on July 29. Hear Phil Klein, the Dog Whisperer on July 22, or participate in one of the several book discussions to be held throughout the summer.
