Summer Reading Programs Now for Both Adults and Kids

By EGP Staff Report

The City of Commerce Public Library on June 18 started its multiple summer reading programs, including a new offering for adults ages 18 and over.

“Between the Covers,” the library’s first ever-adult summer reading program is now underway and runs through Aug. 4. Adults registered in the program have a chance to win a mug with the “Between the Covers” logo by reading or listening to two books of their choice and filling out a reading sheet or online review for each on the library’s website.

The program includes movie screenings at various Commerce libraries including one on July 31 at Greenwood Library and another on Aug. 2 at the Central Library. They will also have a chance to meet poet Juan Farias Alvarez on July 3, 17, and 31 at the Central Library. All events begin at 6pm. Registration is now open and can be made at any Commerce library or on the library’s website. Those who register will receive a complimentary tote bag; only one entry per person.

Commerce libraries are also hosting an “Own the Night” teen summer reading program that includes a Hunger Games tournament at 6pm on Friday June 29 at the Central Library.

Teens are encouraged to read for 18 hours between now and Aug. 4 to earn a chance to win a computer, which local teens will help build during workshops to be held July 23-26. The program also includes movie screenings and more. To learn more, contact the Commerce Library a t(323) 722-6660.
