Literary Elements: An Adult Summer Reading Program

Why should kids have all the fun? Sign up for the library's Adult Summer Reading Program “Literary Elements” this year and you’ll get a gift just for joining! The only requirement is to read or listen to a book of any kind - that’s it! You can join in person at the Reference, Circulation or Readers Advisor desks or by calling Reference at 973-538-2592 or by filling out the online form found here. Enter to win lots of great prizes all summer long.

Sign up anytime this summer between June 30 and August 30. We just need your name, library card number and phone or email. The program is free and all MAIN patrons 18 and older are invited to participate. When you sign up, you’ll get a reading log where you may keep track of what you read and just for registering you will receive a great gift!

The only objective of the Adult Summer Reading Program is to promote reading and fun. There is no required reading - fiction or nonfiction, eBook or audiobook – anything goes! (It doesn’t have to be a library item.) For each book or eBook you read or audiobook you listen to between June 30 & Labor Day, fill out a book lottery ticket. Write your contact information and the title of the book you read on the ticket and place it in the book lottery ticket box. Prizes are awarded every week. The more you read or listen to, the more chances you have to win fabulous prizes like huge tote bags filled with free books! Last year, participants had the chance to win 25 prizes!

At the end of the summer, all book lottery tickets will be entered into a Grand Prize Drawing. Grand Prizes include gift cards for Barnes & Noble!

If you have any questions or need a reading or listening suggestion, ask at the Readers Advisory or Reference desks or email us at We’re happy to help you find the “Literary Elements” of a good read!
