Welcome! Don't let the kids have all the fun this summer. Join this summer reading program designed especially for grown-ups! In this program, adults will keep track of the books they read. You can also take three special challenges and be entered in a grand prize raffle for a Kobo Arc tablet.


All of our Summer Reading and Learning Programs are sponsored by the Friends of the Keene Public Library, the Trustees of the Keene Public Library, and other community sponsors. Readers (and pre-readers) of all ages can participate! If you have kids, they may be interested in these programs:

Keep track of the time you read this summer and win prizes. Earn bonus points along the way for attending library programs and completing games and tasks online and in your community. Kids will need the permission of a parent or guardian when they sign up online.

Kids that aren't yet reading on their own can still participate - listening to an audiobook or read-along and being read to all count as reading!

This program works the same way as the Kids Summer Game but the prizes have teen appeal.

Each player becomes one of the Illuminati, the "secret masters" who are behind everything! Build your power and wealth, taking control of groups like the FBI, the Federal Reserve, the Nuclear Power Companies, the Orbital Mind Control Lasers, the Semiconscious Liberation Army, the Post Office . . . yes, even the Post Office is part of the Conspiracy . . .
