Summer Reading 2013

We have a summer full of fun for all ages!


Adult Summer Reading Weekly Contest

Every week from July 1st through August 5th, the library will post two new contest questions on our website and social media sites. The first person to come (in person) to the circulation desk at the Fairfield Main Library and the Fairfield Woods Branch Library and answer both questions correctly will win a reusable bag filled with great, donated books. Every bag is guaranteed to have at least one book signed by its author!

The answers to the weekly questions can all be found on the library’s new website. Anyone 18 years old or over is eligible to win, but the answer must be given in person in the library; one winner per family for the duration of the 6 week contest.

Check our website, Twitter, and Facebook pages for the weekly contest questions starting July 1!
