Summer Reading 2018 adult logo

Adults – Age 18 and older

Two ways to play and win!

  1. Adults 18 and over can fill out a form for every book they listen to or read. Place the form in the box in the front lobby or play at smfpl.beanstack.org. Great weekly prizes and a chance to win a grand prize!
  2. Adults and teens can also play the “Libraries Rock” game by guessing the name of a famous music group or artist shown on an iconic album cover. Nine posters featuring library staff will be on display at the front of the lobby beginning May 31. Each week, a new set of clues will be posted in front of a poster to help you guess the music group or artist. The more weeks you play, the more chances you have to win a grand prize.
