Adult Summer Reading 2016 -- Exercise Your Mind!: Home

Adult Summer Reading 2016

This year's Summer Reading theme is "Exercise your Mind. Read!" Explore books about sports, self-empowerment, creativity, healthy habits, food, and fitness. Displays and bookmarks will provide recommended titles, if you need a suggestion or two.

Our Adult Summer reading program is open to patrons 18 years old and up. It will run from Friday July 1 through Friday, July 29. All you have to do to participate is complete and submit Book Review Sheets (either electronic or paper). Reviews should be of adult materials only and you are welcome to enter as many reviews as you like. We will have weekly drawings for prizes donated by the generous Nyack business community. Prizes are limited to Nyack and Valley Cottage residents. We will also be offering related programs open to all who wish to participate. On July 7, we will host a Strategy Board game Night from 7 -- 8:30 pm. At the same time on July 13, we will meet to discuss Nathanial Philbrick's National Book Award Winner In the Heart of the Sea followed up on July 20 with a showing of Ron Howard's film version starting at 7 pm. A Zumba dance party on July 29 will celebrate the official end of our Adult Summer Reading program.

For more information please contact the Adult Reference Department on the fourth floor, at 845-358-3370, ext. 214 or email

Thank you to our wonderful local merchants for their prize donations.
