PELL CITY -- The Pell City Public Library is kicking off its 2018 Adult Summer Reading at noon Wednesday, July 18, with a special concert by “The King of Rock-N-Roll,” Elvis impersonator Terry Turner, according to a press release.
This program is the first of several planned for this summer series, which will take place on Wednesdays in July and August.
Turner will present a concert of Elvis’ most popular hits. The concert is free, and all ages are invited to attend.
While in the complex, adults are encouraged to register to participate in the reading segment of the Adult Summer Reading Program, library Assistant Director Susan Mann said.
The reading segment offers participants the chance to win special prizes, such as gift baskets, dinners-for-two, gift cards, etc., just by reading books of their choosing and entering their names in a weekly drawing (one entry per book read.)
Prize drawings will be each Wednesday during the programming series and at the grand finale Aug. 15.
“The reading segment of the series gives adults the opportunity to have a little fun, while encouraging them to read their favorite authors or genres,” Mann said in the release. “Audio books and e-books are acceptable reading formats, along with traditional books -- and all are available for checkout through the library.”
She said all special programs in the summer series are free and open to the public, and those attending are not required to participate in the reading segment to attend, although participants are encouraged to do so.
The programs will take place each Wednesday at noon through Aug. 15.
