Adult Summer Reading Program

2019 A Universe of Stories

With the mission to inspire creativity and encourage curiosity, Grand Forks Public_ is excited to announce the 2019 Summer Reading Program, a Universe of Stories! 

The Summer Reading Program opens on June 1st and runs through July 28th. All adults participating in the program can log their reading minutes for "dollars" online, gain extra "dollars" for completing challenges online, as well as enter in secret codes for extra "dollars" from library events (codes distributed at the event and need to be entered into your online logging account - some events require reservations- see the calendar on this site, or the list of events on the logging site to reserve your spot).

Here's how it works:

  1. Register to participate HERE
  2. Participating adults will earn "Library Dollars" for minutes read, challenges completed, and library events attended
  3. Each minute read equals one (1) Library Dollar
  4. "Reading" includes books, eBooks, audio books, eAudio books, magazines, newspapers, & anime films with subtitles. Even reading to younger children!
  5. Complete challenges and attend library programs to earn extra minutes and more entries into the prize drawing
  6. A prize auction will be held on  August 2nd, participants will receive and use their bank of Library Dollars to bid on and win prizes!
