The San Antonio Public Library will kick off its annual Summer Reading Program officially on June 1, but the program will get some special attention from Mayor Julian Castro as he kicks off the program at the Central Library on May 28.
This year’s Summer Reading Program is going to be bigger and better than ever before as the San Antonio Public Library has added an Adult Reading component to the program for the very first time. Adults will have to read three books between June 1 and Aug. 31. It doesn’t matter which books as any three books, any length, any language, any subject, and any form (eBooks and audio books included) will count. When finished and logged, adults can enter the San Antonio Public Library prize drawing.
As for the children’s and teen programs, reading logs are available at any branch library or at Central Library beginning June 1, or online at www.mysapl.org. Once the logs have been completed and submitted, children will receive a certificate of completion signed by Mayor Castro and can choose one free book. Teens can sign up, read a book and attend a teen event and their names will be entered into a grand prize drawing that will take place during the annual Teen GameFest in August.
