Adult Summer Reading: Imagine Your Story

The Adult Summer Reading Program starts June 15 and runs through August 15, 2020. Adults can enjoy summer reading fun as well! Read as many books as you would like, review them, and enter in for prizes. Reading slips are now available. They can be picked up at the library, printed from our website, and reading can be logged through Beanstack (https://westbendlibrary.beanstack.org/). Slips can then be dropped off at the library, emailed to Sara at sdavister@westbendlibrary.org or logged online with Beanstack. Prize information will be posted online as well.
