ADULT SUMMER READING!

The New Brunswick Free Public Library presents our fourth annual Adult Summer Reading Program! The theme this year is "Exercise Your Mind!" Any adult (at least 18 years of age) may participate in this program, regardless of residency.

Exercise Your Mind       ejercita la mente

The Adult Summer Reading Program runs from June 13 through August 18, 2016. No specific registration is required, only participation -- and participation is EASY! We have "Bingo Cards" with simple activities for participants to complete in order to be eligible for a prize at the end of the program. Get Bingo Cards at the Reference Desk or download one here (o en español). There is no limit to how many Bingo Cards an individual may complete and submit during the program. There will be one prize drawing, with multiple prizes to be won, on Friday August 19th.

The library will also host multiple events during the summer: See below for details or download a calendar here!


* The library thanks these generous sponsors for making this program possible! *
