Exploring Our World
Looking for a fun way to read more during the summer? Join The Community Library for its Adult Summer Reading Program!
The Community Library, Hailey Public Library, and Bellevue Public Library are collaborating to host the 2023 Valley-wide Adult Summer Reading program. The theme, Exploring Our World, aims to expand and inspire your experience of the extraordinary and diverse world in which we live.
The program runs from Saturday, May 26 to Tuesday, September 5. In-person and on-line registration opens Saturday, May 25, 2023.
“Summer in the Northern Rockies invites each of us to enjoy the mountain lifestyle in our own way,” says Circulation Manager Pam Parker. “This year’s Adult Summer Reads theme of “Exploring Our World” leaves a lot of room for creativity—whether it’s a visit to an Idaho park or a novel set in a far-away place, the activities to encourage a journey of discovery for participants.
“I always look forward to hearing about our readers’ explorations when they drop into the library to get more summer reads and get their passports stamped.”
After registering, participants will receive a passport, which is available in either English or Spanish. For each book read or activity completed, readers will get a page in their passport stamped at their ‘home’ library and receive one ticket per page to enter drawings for great prizes—including gift certificacts to the Gold Mine Thrift store. In addition, two participants will be selected from each library to enjoy a casual dinner at the historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House on Monday, September 18, 2023.
Participants must be 18+ and will need a library card with The Community Library — visit Get a Library Card to get started. Children and Teens should register in the Children and Teen programs.
Drawing: Prize winners will be drawn randomly on September 6, 2023 and will be notified by telephone.
