Build a Better World. Read!

 

Summer! For many adult readers the word “summer” reminds us of childhood – long days spent reading under a tree, on the porch, at the beach or on vacation. The Adult Summer Reading Program allows all of us to experience the joy of summer reading once again.

Are you an adult reading this summer? Do you like to review, comment, or keep track of your reading? Would you like to add your hours to the hours our kids are reading to sponsor a Fennec Fox? Would you like to do this just for the fun of it? Last year our adult readers logged over 300 hours reading a wide variety of books. If you would like to join the fun just register here and get started! The program runs from June 20th - August 18th.

We hope that you will post brief reviews of the books you are enjoying to share with other readers. To post reviews simply register online, log your titles and time, and when you are finished with the book you will be able to comment/review your book. Your comments will be shared with others to encourage them to check out a book you loved.

If you really want to share and encourage young readers, please join the statewide What’s Your Four campaign on social media. This program initiated by the MBLC is a way to share on social media just what you are reading and how much fun it is.

In addition to reading and reviewing, we are offering opportunities to join other readers in book discussions, and to participate in craft nights. No heavy lifting required to enjoy summer reading at the Abington Public Library!

Please check here for our various Adult Book Clubs.

Popular Fiction Book Group     7:00

Join us for an evening of spirited conversation about The Whistler  by John Grisham.  Fireworks ensue when lawyer Lacey Stoltz investigates a corrupt Florida judge.  Grisham is the master of the popular legal thriller but he doesn’t always get critical respect.  Let’s discuss!  Books may be reserved at the Library.  Registration is not required for this program, and all are welcome to join the discussion, facilitated by Library Director Deb Grimmett, on Wednesday August 2 at 7:00 PM.
