Adult Summer Reading Program June 2nd through August 31st: "Libraries Rock"

“Libraries Rock” is the theme of the Corsicana Public Library’s 2018 Adult Summer Reading Challenge for adults ages 18 and up. This is an opportunity for every adult to be a great example for their own children and for the youth in our community. We are challenging the adults of Navarro County to collectively read 3500 books between June 2nd and August 31st. Readers will use the Libraries Rock Log to log titles of their choice. There will be an adult reading party for all program participants on Friday, September 7th at 6:00 PM. Readers will share a meal, play games and all prizes will be awarded!

Parents as Reading Partners

Parents/guardians reading to their children can count the same hours of reading toward books in the adult program. Twelve children's books equal one adult book. Four junior fiction books equal one adult book.
