Read 4 Life adult summer reading

You will be able to play Read 4 Life by asking for a gameboard at your library,  printing out a gameboard (available in Chinese, Vietnamese, Spanish, Russian and English), or by playing online on your computer or smartphone.  The game begins June 16. 

This game is for adults. Are you 18 or younger? We have a summer reading game just for you.
