Summer Reading is not just for kids and teens, it’s for everyone!

For the third summer in a row, Fairfax County Public Library is offering a systemwide series of challenges and prizes for the grown-up readers in our community. As part of the 2021 Summer Reading Adventure (SRA), adults are challenged to read 100 minutes or choose from five summer activity challenges — for example: spend an evening stargazing — and log them online with Beanstack to earn a virtual badge.

CSLP Tails and Tales (TM) turtleUpon signing up for the SRA, which begins June 11, adults can visit their local branch to pick up a free reusable straw (while supplies last). Earn five badges for the chance to win a $150 Amazon eGift card. Earn 10 badges by August 13 to complete the program and have the chance to win a $200 card.*

Plus, check out FCPL’s virtual summer event offerings for adults, including an evening with author Garrard Conley June 24 and a musical performance by Spanish guitarist Gladius July 15.

*Prizes made possible by the Fairfax Library Foundation.
