Master the Art of Reading
Adult Summer Reading Program

Read to Help Feed!

Once again, the Friends of the Ripon Public Library have agreed to donate 10 cents to the Ripon Area Food Pantries for each book read or listened to during our adult summer reading program. You have to be enrolled in the program for your books to count! Our goal is to read 1200 books this year! Please help out in this worthy cause. Watch for weekly book count updates!
 
Ready to Sign Up? Here’s What You Do:
  • Register using the form provided.
  • Read or listen to books from June 15 to August 1. Fill out a reading ticket for each book you read.
  • Any event that you attend counts as a book!
  • Drop your reading tickets in the box provided at the library.
  • Tickets will be randomly drawn every Monday morning for weekly prizes.
  • All weekly tickets will be compiled for the grand prize drawing!
  • Winners will be notified by phone.
  • This year’s grand prize is a Brewers fun pack for a group of four!

Without the financial support of the Friends of the Ripon Public Library, this and many other library programs and events would not be possible. If you are interested in becoming a Friend of the library, please ask for a membership invitation today!
