Hit the books this summer at the Audelia Road Branch’s Adult Summer Reading Program. It’s a fun way for book lovers to keep track of their reading and discover new titles and genres. All completed logs need to be turned in to a librarian on or before August 26, 2006. Prizes can be earned for the number of books read including some drawings for great prizes for those who fill up the whole log.
