Adult Summer Reading Program

To the Library and Beyond


Share your favorite summer book!

Adults 18+ are invited to travel To the Library and Beyond at the Austin Public Library’s Adult Summer Reading events. Get a closer look at the universe at A Celestial Conversation, party at PRIDE Prom, laugh along with Master Pancake, dance to a DJ’s beat at a Silent Rave, team up with friends for a Jigsaw Puzzle Competition or swoon under the stars at Piano Latino. Multiple locations will offer opportunities to snuggle animals at Cosmic Crafts and Cuddles and brave the Return of the Demagorgon in an all-new Escape Room. Check our event calendar for details. 

Reading is its own cosmic journey, so get a reading prize with your Adult Summer Reading event schedule. Write the title of your favorite 2019 summer read on the schedule’s bottom tab and turn that tab in for a prize at your closest Austin Public Library location between June 15 – August 31, while supplies last.

Adult Summer Reading, To the Library and Beyond, is about coming together to create, explore, learn and celebrate our Austin community at the Library. To the Library and Beyond events are free and open to the public. For more information call 512-974-7400, Ask a Librarian or visit
