Grownups like prizes, too, right? Well, at the Normal Public Library, adults can earn prizes for reading children’s books!
The ARKS program offers you a great opportunity to re-read childhood favorites, find new gems, and catch up on what your kids are reading.
Read with your kids, or on your own. Don’t worry, you don’t need to have a kid to join!
Register for ARKS – Adults Reading Kids’ Stuff and track your reading once you’ve registered. You can register at the library on online.
The ARKS program runs every summer as part of the Summer Reading Program.
Adults 18 years and older can register in the Children’s Department or online.
When you register, you’ll get a sheet to keep track of your reading. You’ll read from different categories, like Award Books, Poetry, and Fiction. The categories are purposely broad so that you’ll have lots of books to choose from.
