Dive into Something New!

June 6 to August 28

Welcome to our 7th annual Adult Summer Reading Program! This summer, let Darien Library be your destination to expose yourself to something completely out of the ordinary. Write a screenplay, take up the ukulele, gaze up at the night sky, or explore the intersection of magic and math.


Our weekly prize drawings will feature tote bags filled with new and yet-to-be-published books. And we’re providing you the chance to win the new iPad in our Grand Prize drawing!

How to Participate: There is no need to register for our Adult Summer Reading Program. To enter our weekly and Grand Prize drawings, all you have to do is READ. Each review of a book, audio book, or eBook counts as a prize entry. To submit reviews, visit Darien Library’s Welcome Desk to pick up and fill out a Review/Prize Entry Card. You can also write your review online at darienlibrary.org. If you review your books online, you still need to fill out a Prize Entry Card at the Library with your name, email address, and the date and title of your online review in order to enter our drawings.

Watch how to write a review online.

To Submit an Online Review:

- Create an account on the Library’s website. Or, if you have already created an account, you can just log in.

- Type the title of your book in the search field at the top of the page. When you click “search,” a list of results will appear.

- Click on the title of the book you would like to review. The book’s record will appear.

- Under "Community Reviews," click on “Write a review!” and begin typing away!

- Don’t forget to click “Submit” and then fill out your name and address at the bottom of the Prize Entry Cards that were included in your packet. Drop them off the next time you visit the Library, and you’ll be entered into our prize drawings!

The more you read, the more chances to win!
