Summer Reading

Instructions for Adult Readers

How to Participate:

1. Sign up and get a Reading Log. Signing up is easy! All we need is your first and last name. As long as you're over 18, we don't need to know your specific age. If you've got access to a printer, you can print a Reading Log from our easy-to-use online sign-up portal (here), or you can pick up an Reading Log from a City of Albuquerque Meal Site or from one of our Public Library Branches once we're back open for business. (If you don't have a printer, and branches are still closed, you can keep track of your reading hours with a series of tick/hash-marks on any kind of paper you have handy.)

2. Circle or mark one Book symbol on your Reading Log for each hour you spend reading or listening to someone else read. (Audiobooks count, too!) If you mark all the symbols on your Reading Log and would like another, you can request one at one of our Library Branch locations once we've re-opened.

3. When you have completed the reading for all of the symbols on your Reading Log, turn it in at your local branch of the Public Library (once we've re-opened, of course!) for an entry into a special prize drawing we'll hold at each branch for Adults at the end of the Summer Reading Program.

4. Almost every type of visual or audio reading material counts! Exceptions: Texts, tweets, or other social media activity.
