Summer Reading for Grown-Ups


Whether you’re 18 or 88 years of age, you can sign up to read and review books, attend library events, and earn a chance to win books from visiting authors. 

Summer Reading for Grown-Ups (SRG) is a free incentive-based program to encourage adults to read and explore various library programs.

*Register and receive a special SRG car decal!* 

Read books in any format and submit your original mini review that includes your opinion and is not only a summary. Prize drawings are based on how many original reviews you submit. In other words, the more you read and review, the better your chances of winning!

You may read a book, an ebook, comic book, graphic novel, blogs, picture/board books, magazine articles, newspapers, or listen to an audiobook.

Family Fun!

Parents and caregivers can read this summer, too. Families (1 adult + 1 youth) who complete SRP will win 1 ticket to enter into the family prize drawing of their choice.

Adults will receive a Summer Reading for Grownups sticker and a Buy-One-Get-One coupon for a Whataburger Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit just for registering for the program! 

In order to qualify, the child must complete the 30 day level and the adult must write 2 reviews (1 for an item read for the adult’s enjoyment and 1 for a youth item read with their child).

 Audiobooks, comic books, magazines, and more - it all counts as reading! Prizes available while supplies last.

*For up-to-date program dates, info about registration and more check our online calendar. 

Note: HPL staff members are not eligible to participate in the 2019 SRG

Author Talk Featuring Casey McQuiston
Saturday, June 22 | 1 PM - 3 PM
Freed-Montrose Neighborhood Library

Drop in for an afternoon of conversation about Red, White & Royal Blue, author Casey McQuiston's debut novel.


About the Book

First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations.


About the Author

Casey McQuiston grew up in the swamps of Southern Louisiana, where she cultivated an abiding love for honey butter biscuits and stories with big, beating hearts. She studied journalism and worked in magazine publishing for years before returning to her first love: joyous, offbeat romantic comedies and escapist fiction. She now lives in the mountains of Fort Collins, Colorado, with a collection of caftans and her poodle mix, Pepper.
