Summer reading clubs
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Kanawha County Public Library's annual summer reading clubs for adults and teens will take place May 28 through Aug. 30.
Both clubs require that books be checked out from a Kanawha County Public Library branch. Unabridged audiobooks, Playaways and downloaded WVDeli e-books count toward goals. More details are available at www.kanawhalibrary.org/summerreading.
This year's Britton Summer Reading Club for adults has a numbers theme and offers several choices. Readers may register online, then choose the option that best suits them. Participants can read 20 books or read eight books, one each from eight of 10 selected categories.
Everyone who meets the challenge receives a small prize. A drawing for a variety of additional prizes will be held Sept. 9. The grand prize is a Kindle Paperwhite provided by the Friends of the Library Foundation of Kanawha County.
Current Reads is a summer reading club for ages 12-19, in which they can read anything they want during the summer.
