Adult Summer Reading Program!

Why should kids have all the fun? This summer the Newport Library will be holding a summer reading program just for grown-ups! The 2014 theme is “Literary Elements,” recognizing the intersection of literature and science. Beginning June 2nd, stop by the library to sign up and pick up a reading log. For every book (or ebook or audiobook) you finish, fill out a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of twelve weekly prize drawings

Additionally, the library will host three science-themed evening events. On Tuesday, June 24, at 6:30 p.m., come see The Oregon Fossil Guy, a.k.a., Guy DiTorrice, share his knowledge of the fossils found here on the Oregon Coast. July 26 Randy Reid of the Good Heathens brew club will teach us how to get started on making our very own homebrew. On August 26, sit back and munch on popcorn while watching 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubric’s 1968 classic movie on the struggle between technology and humanity. All programs are free of charge. 

Take the opportunity to stimulate your imagination and foster lifelong learning at your local library! For more information, call the library at 541-265-2153 or check our website at
