Summer Reading at Cary Memorial Library in Lexington, Massachusetts

Adult Summer Reading Program

Summer reading programs aren't just for kids! We're bringing back the popular program for adults. Want to participate? Here's how:

  1. Read a book. Read anything. Need a recommendation? Take a look at the virtual book carousels below, or come in and see our book displays, popular magazines, bestseller lists, the Novelist database, or ask a librarian!
  2. Submit a review. Stop by the library to fill out a short review card and post it on our bulletin board.
  3. Win prizes! Each week two winners will be chosen at random. Each weekly winner will receive a $5 gift card to Rancatore's. At the end of the summer, every participant will be invited to attend an ice cream social. 

Questions? Stop by the Reference Desk.
