Welcome to our Adult Summer Reading Program!
Grown-ups look forward to summer as much as kids do. They plan for time to relax, take vacations, and catch up on reading. Join Library staff this summer as we read along with the kids. Oh, and there are some really cool prizes, too!

When you’re done reading (or listening) to a book, write a one or two sentence review of what you’ve read. You can fill out a paper review or submit online. We’ll share reviews, so you can see what everyone else is reading!

With each review you submit, you’ll be entered in a weekly drawing for a gift card to a local restaurant, as well as the grand prize drawing on August 11. Weekly drawings will be held Monday afternoons from June 16-August 11.

Check out upcoming events to the left on this page.

This is the second book in the Mia Quinn mystery series. It is a great series about a middle-aged woman who works as a prosecutor in the DAs office. She is a widower raising her two children. In this book she learns her husband's death was a murder and not an accident. She sets out to find his killer along with Charlie, a homicide detective she frequently works with in the books.
