The Community Library, Hailey Public Library, and Bellevue Public Library are co-hosting this year’s valley-wide Adult Summer Reading program. The theme, “The Place We Live: Reading and Knowing Home,” aims to encourage newcomers and long-time locals alike to explore our fascinating cultural and natural history. For example, participants could read a book by an Idaho or Wood River Valley author, watch a local parade, or visit a nearby nature preserve.
The 2022 Adult Summer Reading program will run from Memorial Day Weekend and end Labor Day Weekend. In-person and on-line registration opens Saturday, May 28th at each library and ends Tuesday, September 6. After registering, participants will receive a passport available in English or Spanish. For each book read or activity completed, participants will get their passports stamped at their ‘home’ library and receive a ticket for a chance to win great prizes. In addition, two adults will be selected from each library to enjoy a casual dinner at the historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House in September.
