Adult Summer Reading Program

The St. Mary’s County Library (SMCL) is partnering with the Library at St. Mary’s College of Maryland (SMCM) for a fabulous Adult Summer Reading program starting Monday, June 1 and ending Friday, August 14. The adult summer reading program is open to all members of the SMCM Library community (students, staff, faculty, alumni) and all residents of the tri-county area (including library staff). Participants may read anything they like and will earn points by submitting reviews on the SMCM library blog,, on the SMCL Goodreads page, or submitting a handwritten review to any branch of the SMCL. Prizes will be awarded monthly, and the more points you earn, the more entries you get into the grand prize drawings! 


Please note that library staff may be taking photos of any or all events to use for future library publications. Program participants’ photos may be used without notification or compensation. If you do not feel comfortable having your photo taken, please inform library staff when you arrive to a program.
