Adult Summer Reading Program

Welcome to the Chester County and Henrietta Hankin Branch Libraries’ 2017 Adult Summer Reading Program!

Build a Better World

This year's theme is "Build a Better World," and we encourage you to read books and participate in library activities that will expand your appreciation of our world. Registration begins Monday, June 5th, and continues through the end of the program on Sunday, August 20th. Adult Summer Reading is open to anyone 18 years and older.

How to Participate

Please register only once at the Reference Desk of either library, or register online at The first 50 people who sign up can choose a free book OR an Adult Summer Reading button!

On July 7th, we’ll pick a winner from everyone who is registered for a pack of general admission tickets to the Reading Fighin’ Phils!

Print a BINGO card here: then read and complete as many activities as you are able to earn tickets for the end of summer prize drawings. Bingo cards may also be picked up at either library’s Reference Desk. One card per reader. Enter the title of the book you read on the corresponding numbered line. Use each title only once.

You may print the Scavenger Hunt form: mentioned in the BINGO card or pick the form up at the library.

Except for challenges #7 and #14, your summer reading can be done in any format – eBook, audiobook, or print. #7 requires you to download an eBook or eAudiobook. #14 requires you to listen to an audiobook. Books should be at the Adult or Young Adult reading level.

Earn 1 raffle ticket for each square you mark off, up to 25 tickets. Earn additional raffle tickets for prize drawings by attending Adult Summer Reading programs. Check with libraries for relevant programs. You earn 1 ticket for each program attended. You may win 1 general raffle prize.

Get BINGO (5 squares in a row, column, or diagonal) and earn a raffle ticket for the Grand Prize! Each participant may earn only 1 Grand Prize raffle ticket. This year’s Grand Prize will be an Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8!

Return your BINGO Card to the Chester County Library or Henrietta Hankin Branch Library between August 13th and September 7th to receive your raffle tickets and enter the prize drawings.
