Adults challenged to read this summer

Adults who love to read anything they can get their hands on, or listen to audio books are invited to register for the Adult Summer Reading Challenge.

"Last summer, the adult summer reading program at the library was very popular so we’re doing it again," said Monica Finn, a librarian with the Cowichan and Chemainus branches of the Vancouver Island Regional Library.

The program runs through July and August, beginning on July 2.

There’s some grown-up incentive to hit the books this summer, too.

For each week that you read or listen every day for 15 minutes or more, you can turn in an entry slip at the Cowichan library in Duncan for a chance to win a gift certificate to Hudson’s on First or the Chemainus library to win a gift certificate to Odika Cafe.

There are two prize draws, one at the end of July and one at the end of August, for each library branch and then a grand prize draw for the entire library system in September. So pick up some summer reads.
