Why didn't I think of that?

Adults have fun with summer reading in Watertown

By Maria Gruener, Assistant Director Watertown Regional Library

Water Your Mind Summer Reading Logo

Water Your Mind – READ! is this year's theme for Watertown Regional Library’s Adult Summer Reading Program. Residents have been invited to read or listen to fiction and nonfiction books, attend library events and have some fun.

Reader’s Advisory bookmarks are being released to assist participants in finding new authors they might enjoy, but rather than count the participant’s books, the program has been centered around a community read. This year we have chosen the One Book South Dakota title What is the What? by Dave Eggers.

Since we are not counting books or requiring book reviews, prizes can be won by correctly guessing the weekly “Name That Book” clue. The clue as well as other library information can be found on our Facebook fan page or on Twitter.

In addition to reading and winning prizes, library programs such as vacation scrapbooking. Ancestry Library Edition and Wii games are being offered. In the end, everyone who participates and completes a short evaluation will receive a book bag. One of the evaluation questions is “What is the best book you have read this summer?” Answers will be compiled in a booklist which will be distributed to library patrons. The program runs June 1 – July 31.
