Summer Reading is Here!

Our Summer Reading Program for Adults and Teens, “Read to the Rhythm,” began today!  This vibrant program designed to keep readers of all ages reading throughout the summer goes until August 9th.

People who have a Rolling Meadows library card are encouraged to sign up at the Reader’s Advisory desk in the library.  At sign up, you’ll get a goodie bag with lots of treats, plus two music quizzes to fill out and return for end of summer prizes!

For adults, each book you finish gets you a ticket for our weekly paperback raffle, and for teens, you can read a book, listen to a CD, read a magazine, or watch a movie for your raffle tickets.

Keep an eye out, because there just might be more prizes popping up during the summer!

Come on in and sign up!!
