Summer reading for children and teens is a long-held tradition at the Silver City Public Library, but did you know that summer 2015 is the third time that the library is offering summer reading for adults?
This is a great opportunity to read works by the presenters who will be visiting Silver City for the Southwest Festival of the Written Word, October 2-4, 2015.

The library has compiled a list of all the titles in their collection written, illustrated, or edited by the festival presenters.  See the list at

The Silver City Public Library’ s Adult Summer Reading Program is a great way to expand your reading habits, challenge yourself a little, and have some fun!
