Adult Summer Reading Club 2014


    Due to last year's overwhelming success, the Merrick, North Merrick, Bellmore and North Bellmore libraries are once again collaborating on a Summer Reading Club for adults.  This year's nationwide theme , "Literary Elements," has a scientific twist, although any type of reading is encouraged. In order to make reporting a bit easier you can report titles online.

All participants are invited to a not-to-be missed party which will be held at the Merrick library on August 13th at 7PM.  Party goers will be joined by author Susan Henderson.  Participants of the program who are patrons of any of the 4 libraries will have a chance to win a prize, many of them graciously donated by our local businesses.  As a participant, you must be present to win the grand prize, a Kindle Paperwhite.  The more you read, the better your chances are of winning a prize (sorry, only one prize per person).  Join in the fun for a summer of interesting reading!
Sign Up begins June 23rd at the Reference Desk
