Participation is easy! Read any book (eBooks and audiobooks count, too!). Fill out a review in person at any Library location or at http://tiny.cc/summerreading. Each review will be entered into a raffle, to take place on August 16th, for our Grand Prize: a pair of Red Sox tickets!*
Check below every two weeks for a new reading challenge.
And because Summer Reading fun isn’t just for kids, adults can win fun prizes, too! Get started right away! For every two weeks of the challenge, the first twelve people who fill out reviews at our Central Library will also receive a small prize.
*City of Somerville employees are not eligible for the Grand Prize.
