Summer Reading 2021: Adults

for Ages 18+

June 14 – August 14, 2021

To complete the challenge and earn a virtual raffle ticket, we ask you to read a book. But keep reading even after completion to continue earning raffle tickets for the chance to win great prizes—get an extra raffle ticket for every book you read!

Don’t forget to enter those virtual raffle tickets in the drawing to win one of our three grand prizes:

  • Coffee Lovers’ Prize Basket
  • Book Lovers’ Prize Basket
  • 2 Season Tickets to the Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures Series

Here at the library, we support all reading, so be creative with what counts as a ‘book.’ Audiobooks, podcasts, magazines, news articles, webcomics, etc. are all reading, and we want you to count that! Use your best judgement to decide when you’ve read enough non-books for it to count as a book. Be honest with yourself, and trust your gut.

Happy reading!
