2020 Adult Summer Reading

Thanks for participating in this year’s summer reading program. Prize winners have been notified.


Who can participate?

This summer, adults (18 +) are invited to Imagine Your Story. You’re in charge of your summer reading destiny.

How does it work?

How it will work is up to you. You will have the choice to read up to eight books or engage in a variety of fun activities designed with you in mind. Will you READ THIS? Or, will you DO THAT? Whether you decide to read a biography or write a six-word memoir, the choice is yours. Need help with book suggestions? Check out our book lists below and try our interactive Choose Your Next Chapter to get some expert recommendations.

When does it happen?

Registration is now open and the program concludes on August 15. You have two options to track your progress; either use an online progress tracker or the pen and paper method. Register for paper participation to receive the printable activity log.  Or, register for online participation by setting up an account on the Beanstack webpage, or download the app available on Google Play and Apple App stores.



Submit your completed challenges by August 15 and you will be entered into a grand prize drawing for a $100 gift card to a Princeton restaurant of your choice; second and third prize winners will receive a $25 gift card to Labyrinth Books.
