Adults can enjoy bingo, art, trivia and so much more this summer at the Arlington Public Library. The library is holding a variety of free events as part of its Summer Reading Challenge. These events will take place at a library location or in partnership with local Arlington businesses. All events are free and open for ages 18+ and up. Registration is required for events at the library.

Also, all summer long adults are invited to participate in our Summer Reading Challenge. Every time you read one book or attend one program (virtually or in-person), submit an entry form online to be entered into weekly drawings for gift packs.
