Adult Summer Reading
Get the whole family involved in Summer Library Club

Adult Reading LogAdults read just 20 hours, and you'll be entered to win a $25 Union Ave Books gift card or $10 Friends of the Library gift certificate (10 winners). Plus, if you get caught reading, you'll be a great role model for the kids in your life. Research shows that when adults read in front of their kids, the children are more likely to grow up to be readers.

All participants must have a Knox County Public Library card in good standing.

Prize winners will be notified on or after September 5.
