Who said summer reading clubs are just for kids?
At the Oak Lawn Public Library for example, adults also have a summer reading club.
The “Dig Into Reading” club for adults can be joined by simply stopping at the help desk. And, there’s a chance to do more than read.
Patrons can also win prizes.
For every 300 pages read or listened to on tape from the library’s collection, patrons will earn a raffle ticket to apply toward a gift basket drawing.
Anyone who manages to read 1,800 pages, approximately six books, gets a completion prize of either a $5 gift card to Starbucks or to the BookWorm Cafe on the library’s first floor.
And, after reading 1,800 pages, you can still check in after every 300 pages for additional raffle tickets until the deadline of 3 p.m. Aug. 3. The prize basket drawing will be on Aug. 6.
The adult reading program is just one of the many things being offered at the library this summer.
Reading programs are available for children in preschool through the eighth grade and for high school students.
The “Beneath the Surface” program for high school students also has raffle tickets for gift baskets, with the 10 teens who read the most pages getting special prizes.
The library also offers a series of “family flicks” this summer.
“The Fantastic Mr. Fox” will be shown at noon July 12 and at noon July 14. “Oz The Great and Powerful” will be shown at noon July 19 and “The Croods” will be shown at noon July 26 and at 2 p.m. Aug. 11.
