2022 Summer Reading: Adult Summer Reading Program

Read Beyond the Beaten Path this summer!

Overview

Welcome to the 7th annual Adult Summer Reading Program at the Westwood Public Library!

Our goal: Encourage everyone to get into the habit of reading. Log each day that you read this summer — audiobooks count, too!

To log your reading, sign into your Beanstack account or pick up a paper log at the library.

Earn a badge for every 10 days that you read/listen. 1 badge = 1 ticket to win a prize basket — that's up to 8 entries!

a badge icon of a tent in the woods   a badge icon of a campfire at night   a badge icon of s'mores   a badge icon of a canoe on a lake   a badge icon of a person in hiking boots    a badge icon of a picnic table next to a lake   a badge icon of a telescope under a starry sky   a badge icon of a VW bus on a mountainside

We know that some days will be busier than others, so whether you read 10 pages or 10 books in one day, you can log that as a reading day for the challenge. Running from June 1 to August 29, the Summer Reading program is 90 days long. If you ever need a break, skip up to 10 days without missing out on a raffle entry.
