The Adult Summer Reading Program starts on June 1st! Drop in any location to pick up a bookmark reading log. Fill in the back of the bookmark with titles of books you read this summer. Books, ebooks, audiobooks, newspapers, and magazines count! Turn in your bookmark to any Oldham County Library and get a reusable tote while supplies last. Each title filled in represents an entry in a prize drawing at the end of summer for a Galaxy tablet and other prizes. You can also win prizes by attending events! Every adult event will have a themed prize, and winners will be drawn that night for each event.
