Virtual Adult Summer Reading: June 12-August 14

undefined

Children shouldn't have all the fun! Adults like reading and receiving incentives, too! Fairfax County Public Library has a system-wide Adult Summer Reading Program for age 18 and up. This summer only, the program will be virtual. You can complete gameboard challenges or read or listen to books of your choice.

Adults do not need to register ahead of time to participate in our Summer Reading Program. 

How it works:

  • Download the adult summer reading gameboard or view a text-only version
  • The gameboard is divided into three prize milestones. Play the game by completing the challenges. When you reach each prize milestone, submit a form to be entered into a random drawing for one of two Amazon e-gift cards. (You may only submit one form for each prize milestone.)
  • Don’t want to complete some (or any) of the gameboard challenges? No problem! In lieu of completing a challenge, simply read or listen to a book of your choice.

The amounts of the Amazon e-gift cards for each prize milestone:

  • Prize Milestone 1: $100 
  • Prize Milestone 2: $150 
  • Prize Milestone 3: $200 

You will have until August 14 to complete the gameboard challenges or read/listen to books of your choice. The drawings close on August 14, and winners will be chosen and notified by August 31.
