Programs for Adults

Summer Reading Program is for Adults too!

Summer Reading at Bolivar-Harpers Ferry Public Library is a mix of activities and a fun reading challenge throughout the summer months. The goal is to encourage patrons to check out and read books this summer! You can choose the number and type of books you want to read.

When is it?

Monday June 3rd – Thursday, July 25th. Sign up anytime on or after Monday June 3rd. 

How does it work?

Earn tickets for what you read!

Pick up your reading log starting Monday, June 3rd. and begin reading. Record the library books you read starting June 17, 2019. Receive tickets for the books you read throughout the length of the program. One book equals one ticket. Bring your reading log to the library to get tickets for raffle prizes.
