It’s Not Just for Kids!
“Literary Elements” is the theme for this year’s Adult Summer R.E.A.D.ing (Reading, Exploration, Art, Discovery) Program and Broward County Library is offering a summer’s worth of fun for all ages. Summer reading isn’t just for kids. Life in South Florida slows down when the mercury rises and the rains begin, making summer the perfect time to kick back and catch up on all the books you’ve been too busy to read.
Ready to read? Visit your local Broward County Library location to stock up on free books, audiobooks, CDs and DVDs. For maximum convenience, download free eBooks from BCL WoW – Broward County Library Without Walls, where you can select from thousands of titles in every genre and access them at no cost. During the Adult Summer R.E.A.D.ing Program, anyone can register for the program and be entered into a drawing for a eReader at the end of the summer.
