The adult summer reading challenge is a two month, self-directed reading opportunity for adults to venture outside their comfort zone. Use the challenge squares and shake up your reading routine to discover new genres or authors. And there's a prize too, a one year membership to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, funded by the Friends of the Greenburgh Library.

Each challenge square represents a different category chosen by the Greenburgh Public Library staff. Participants will record each title read in the the appropriate square, starting June 15th and ending August 15, 2023.  Book titles can be used only once per entry form.

How do I get an entry for the challenge?

You can download a copy here or pick one up at the library. Una versión en español está disponible aquí. Print entry forms will be available at the Information Desk in the lobby.

How do I find books for these categories? 

Use the library's new catalog or check one of these book lists on the library's website. 

How to Play: 

  • Keep track of the books you read and write the title and author in the matching square

  • A title can only be used once on the entry form

  • Our book lists are for inspiration, but you need not read only from our lists.

  • Return your completed entry form by August 23, 2023.

Does it matter what format I read? 

Nope. Physical books, ebooks, audiobooks, or digital audiobooks can be used to complete the challenge. Use the Libby, cloudLibrary and Hoopla apps to find books. 

How do I qualify for the drawing?

  • Get a library card, if you don't already have one. Apply for a card online.
  • You must be 18+ years of age. Summer reading programs are available for children and teens
  • Complete three challenge squares
  • Books must be read between June 15 and August 15, 2023.

    • Email: snap a picture of your completed entry form and send it to

    • In the library: drop your completed entry into the collection box at the Information Desk in the lobby.

    • Via mail: address your envelope to Adult Summer Read, Greenburgh Public Library, 300 Tarrytown Road, Elmsford, NY 10523.

    • Fine Print: One completed entry form per person. The prize drawing will be the week of August 28, 2023.
