Explore the World Through the Adult Summer Reading Program

"Novel Destinations," the 2011 Adult Summer Reading Program, runs May 21 through August 6. Participation is free, and registration forms are available at any of the 10 Library branches and the Mobile Library, the new bookmobile, or download one here.
