Adult Summer Reading Program — 2009
My Favorite Spot to Read

We want to know where your favorite place is to read this summer! Are you curling up with a thriller in your own backyard, or carrying a romance novel with you as you hike the Rocky Mountains? Do you listen to a downloadable audiobook or book-on-CD in your neighborhood park, or is the latest bestselling biography in your travel bag when you take your kids to the pool for swim lessons?

Whatever your reading pleasure, we hope you'll feel like sharing with us. We encourage you to have a digital picture taken of yourself in your favorite reading spot this summer, then send it to us, as an attachment to a piece of e-mail at adultsrp@lincolnlibraries.org. If you'll also include a brief description of the location, we'll add it to an online map here at this page, and all visitors to the Adult Summer Reading Program site can see where their fellow participants are spending their summer reading time!

Information to include in your e-mail: Submissions are closed for this 2009 page -- Submit again in 2010!
