Summer Reading Guidelines

 

Flint Public Library’s 2022 Adult Summer Reading Challenge is a great way to diversify your reading, get out of your comfort zone, and “read beyond the beaten path”! Register in person at the library or online by using the link above.

Adults ages 18+ will have eight weeks (June 27th – August 19th) to log their reading. The program will conclude with our end-of-summer raffle, where we’ll be giving away four incredible prizes! There are two ways to win raffle tickets:

1) Log your reading! For every book you read this summer, you will receive a raffle ticket to enter into our summer reading raffle. Log your reading in person at the library or online by using the link above.

2) Play bingo! Use the bingo card at the back of this packet to play along throughout the summer. Every time you score “bingo” you will receive five raffle tickets. Each book read may only be used to fill in one category; for example, Pride & Prejudice could be used to fill the “love story” category or the “book written over 100 years ago” category, but not both. Be strategic! Claim your bingo raffle tickets in person at the library or online by clicking the link above.

The last day to log your reading, earn raffle tickets, and enter them in the raffle is Friday, August 19th. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, August 23rd!
