Be Creative and Express Yourself with the Library's Summer Reading Programs

Summer is here! Time to shake out the beach towels, break out the sunscreen and dust off those books you've been meaning to read. Whether you have a road trip planned or just a day at the beach, you'll need some great books to take with you.

Troy Public Library's Summer Reading Programs will help you keep track of the books you read this summer, and reward you with prizes. Win gift certificates and other goodies just for logging books and reviews online. It's easy: register for a reading program, log in to the program website, enter each book you read, and write a review. Children can look forward to earning weekly prizes. Teens and Adults will have weekly and monthly drawings so keep logging those books all Summer long. This year's Summer Reading Program themes are Be Creative and Express Yourself @ Your Library.
