Summer Reading - Adults

Feed your brain and our community this summer through great programs and the annual Reading Challenge.  New in 2017 - sign up and track your books read online with Beanstack, or pick up a paper reading log at any of the library's four locations.

The Rules:
  1. Read or listen to four books.
  2. Note the titles on Beanstack or the paper reading log.
  3. Stop by the library between June 6 and August 31, 2016 to claim a prize!
Help Build a Better World
In addition to challenging you to reading books, we need your help in stocking the food pantry at Irving Cares.

Every donation of four food items we receive counts as one book on your reading log. There is no limit to the number of items that you can donate. Just bring items to any Irving Public Library to receive credit on your log. The items most needed are canned fruit, canned meats, macaroni and cheese, and canned meals (soups, canned pasta, chili, etc.).
