Groundbreaking Reads is the theme for the adults segment. Adults can log pages from books, eBooks, and even audiobooks, to earn small incentive prizes and drawing tickets for larger prizes. SRP participants who attend adult events between June 3 and August 3 will also receive an event drawing ticket, which can be used for the drawing ticket prizes. There are around 60 events scheduled, including craft classes, computer classes, zombie movies, and special events. Listen to some Ragtime Piano, learn about Warsaw’s past with The Underground Railroad and Archeology in Your Community, and search the skies at Meteorites and Craters or Asteroids and Comets. The reading program is open to adults 18 and older and will run from June 3 through August 3 with signup June 3-30.
Registration for all ages opens June 3 at WCPL and online at www.warsawlibrary.org.
