Adult Summer Reading Program June 3rd through August 31st: "Build a Better World"
“Build a Better World” is the theme of the Corsicana Public Library’s 2017 Adult Summer Reading Challenge for adults ages 18 and up. This is an opportunity for every adult to be a great example for their own children and for the youth in our community. We are challenging the adults of Navarro County to collectively read 3500 books between June 3rd and August 31st. Readers will use the Build a Better World Log to log book titles of their choice. There will be an adult reading party for all program participants on Friday, September 1st at 6:00 PM. Readers will share a meal, play games and all prizes will be awarded!

Parents as Reading Partners
Parents / guardians reading to their children can count the same hours of reading toward books in the adult program. Twelve children's books equals one adult book. Four junior fiction books equals one adult book.
