Adult Winter Reading Program: Plug Into Reading

January 9 - March 5

Carmel Clay Public Library's programming focus for 2017 is science and technology, and our Adult Winter Reading Program is getting in on the fun by asking you to Plug Into Reading. You might even win a Kindle Fire!

We have a large collection of fiction and nonfiction titles that explore science and technology, and we encourage our winter reading participants to check them out. You don't have to read a book on these topics to participate in the program, any book will count toward the 6 titles you can record.

Readers can get into the spirit of technology by reading ebooks or listening to audiobooks from our Overdrive and Hoopla collections. You don't have to have a tablet or smartphone to enjoy books this way--you can also read and listen in your web browser! Readers who plug in and finish a book on one of these digital platforms can enter a special drawing to win a Kindle Fire tablet!
