Spend your summer with SCPL!


Did you know that we have summer reading for adults too? SCPL Adult Summer Reading is open for business from June 2nd to July 31st! Stop in at any branch to join the fun!



How ASR works

Adult Summer Reading this year is really simple! To join the fun, pick up a challenge card at your local branch. On the back of the card is a list of 10 options (including reading or listening to a book, coming to a program or reading a graphic novel). Once you complete six of the ten, bring your library card and your completed challenge card back to your library, and you’ll receive a prize!


What we’re doing

Across our 10 branches, SCPL is holding over 150 programs this summer for adults, from exercise and crafts to book & movie discussions! Every branch has its own program menu for you to pick up so you can keep track of what’s going on at your library.


Who we’re having
