Adult Summer Programs at the Parma Public Library

By on July 9, 2018

The 2018 Adult Summer Reading Contest at the Parma Public Library is in full swing. Read fiction or non-fiction on any device or listen to your favorite author in audio format between June 1 and August 31, 2018 and fill out a reading ticket for each book read. All tickets will be entered in weekly prize drawings for a year’s worth of “Free Holds” to be picked up at the Parma Public Library. Also, for every four completed tickets, the reader will earn a chance for the Grand Prize Drawing of a $50 Amazon gift card. The reader who reads the most books also wins a $50 Amazon gift card, and the person who reads the second highest total will take home a $40 gift card for Amazon. Bonus entry tickets can be earned by reading and attending the discussion for the July or August “Adult Book Discussion” books.
