Summer Reading for Grown-Ups
Summer reading is back at the Topsham Public Library, and we have got a variety of challenges and events for you! This year’s theme is Tails & Tales, and we have the summer reading bingo card and reading log available here and in the library for you to complete and get the chance of winning great prizes! Just try your best and hand them in (completed or not) before September 15, and you’ll be entered in a prize drawing for each! We’ll also have our very popular grab bags for grown-ups available at the beginning of every month—these go fast so if you’re interested, aim to pop in at the beginning of each month.
Here’s the bingo card and reading log. Either print them both from here or pick up a paper copy at the library.
Topsham Public Library is also partnering with the Maine Humanities Council for Read ME this year. Every year, an established Maine author chooses two books from less well-known authors. This year, Gerry Boyle recommended Mill Town by Kerri Arsenault and Mainely Power by Matt Cost. For more details on Maine Humanities programming (much of which is online) visit mainehumanities.org/read-me. Our mystery readers roundtable will be discussing Mainely Power in June but that event is already full! There will also be a discussion of Mill Town on July 14th, registration is now open.
As you may have heard, the library is hosting outside programs this year, including some of them in a tent! In addition to book groups, we’re planning author events, tai chi and even a garden party to celebrate the winners of all our Joy competitions. Make sure you’re signed up for our newsletter to get the latest details.
