Tracking for the Summer Reading program ends in...
To keep things simple, you can begin tracking your reading on the first day of Summer — Tuesday, June 21st.
Postcards to submit your hours in-person along with the Google Form to submit hours online are available now.
Yes! We feel time spent reading is worth being rewarded for adults too. Each hour of reading tracked will become one entry into the drawing for the prize of your choice.
This year’s prize choices are gift cards valued at $30 each:
– Coffee Place of choice (Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, Starch or Tim Horton’s)
– Home Improvement (Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Lowe’s, or White’s Lumber)
– Stewart’s Shops
Participants may only win one prize.
You will have two options:
1st: Pick up a postcard to complete at the Circulation Desk or take home and bring back at a later date for your reading hours or program entries.
2nd: Use the Google form link — click here .
Enter your hours as often as you would like via these options. There are no limits on entries. Amanda will take care of the rest.
No! The books, audiobooks and e-books do not have to be borrowed from the Library to count. Same can be said for magazines, newspapers, journal articles, etc. Time spent reading social media posts should not be counted.
Reading hour postcards and Google form entries must be submitted by 7:55 pm on Wednesday, September 21st in order to be entered into the drawings.
The winners will be announced on Thursday, September 22nd!
Participants must be ages 18+.
Prizes will not be mailed.
Winners must be able to pick up at the Library.
Errors in ticket allocation will be corrected at Amanda’s discretion. (ex. you read 6 hours but allocate 7 tickets…)
Participants may win only one prize. If name is drawn was already drawn for a prize, Amanda will draw another name.

Book Club Options
Flower Library’s Original Book Club has been in existence for more than a decade. Reading selections are a mix of fiction and nonfiction titles chosen by the group through a vote at the end of each series.
This Club meets one Monday a month at 6:30 pm in the Library. Meetings are held September through June, with a break in December. Copies of the title selections are borrowed in advance and are available for checkout at the Circulation Desk (ex. book chosen for October would be available on or before the September discussion date).
No registration is needed to participate. No minimum meeting requirements either.

Hi all! I have been a librarian at Flower Library since 2010. I purchase for and maintain all adult nonfiction collections and am in charge of educational adult events, genealogy presentations, proctoring, and website maintenance. I enjoy bringing new events and topics to the library! When I’m not at the reference desk, you can find me chasing after littlest loves at home (and sneaking in a good book or two!).
