Summer Reading… Not Just for Kids!

Why should kids have all the fun this summer? The Pollard Memorial Library is happy to announce that we will be offering a special adult only summer reading challenge for patrons entitled “Lowell Reads – Summer Edition.”

We have two options for adult patrons to complete opportunities to participate will be offered through September 3rd. We are offering an online component via Beanstack or patrons can download a paper copy or pickup a paper gameboard on the ground floor display by the elevator. Online patrons will receive rewards for logging reading time as well as completing badge challenges. For those with the paper card, complete 1 challenge or all of them for your chance to participate in a raffle for prizes of gift cards and library swag.  For those with paper cards, return your game card on or before September 3rd to be included in the raffle.
