Adult Reading Program

Welcome to the Chester County Library and Henrietta Hankin Branch Adult Summer Reading Program! 
June 7, 2021 to August 15, 2021

The Adult Summer Reading Program, Tails & Tales, is designed for adults age 18 & up to encourage life-long reading habits. 

Read and/or complete as many activities as you are able using the Bingo card provided at the library Reference Desk. Enter the name of the book, magazine, music CD, or activity (program, museum, park, trail, etc.) on the corresponding numbered line. Please use book titles only once. Except for # 1 and # 22, every other “Reading” square can be completed with any format you prefer — read a print book, an eBook, or listen to an audiobook! Books should be at the adult or young adult reading level. For each square you mark off, your odds of winning a general prize will increase. Get BINGO (5 squares in a row, column, or diagonal) and you will be entered in the Grand Prize drawing. Each participant may earn only one Grand Prize entry. 

Can't come to the library right away to pick up the handouts? You can print out the Bingo card and the Book Review Form at home! You can also fill out the Book Review Form online here if you like.

Need ideas for books to read or listen to? Ask a librarian for a Personalized Reading Suggestion or check out NoveList Plus, our online Reader’s Advisory resource. Check out the Flipster e-magazine resource on your computer or mobile device to help complete your Bingo card activities.

Return your Bingo Card to the Chester County Library or Henrietta Hankin Branch between August 16th and August 28th. Library staff will stamp and count squares completed. Prize winners will be drawn on Monday, August 30th and will be notified by email or phone call.
