Adult Summer Fun: Reach Out

week 5 badge

This summer, as part of the virtual Summer Fun Program for Adults, we will celebrate a different fun theme each week. On Mondays, you will find a reading list, curated by knowledgeable library staff, on our Advice for Reader's Blog. Some weeks will also have a special virtual program, video, or activity.

This week is all about reaching out. Our experiences with social distancing this year may have left us disconnected from friends, family and coworkers. Why not take this week to reach out to someone you haven't seen in a while? For inspiration, we have created a reading list of great connections and correspondences--collections of letters and epistolary novels. Head on over to Advice for Readers to check it out.

Then, sign up for the Summer Fun Program. You can write reviews or do activities to get raffle tickets. Prizes include lot of fun things to support your ability to play, including a Chromebook, a free Annual BayWheels membership, boating on Lake Merritt and gift cards for groceries, gardening supplies, sporting goods, books and coffee.

Here are this week's activities. You only need to do one to earn a raffle ticket:

  • Participate in a community meeting or gathering 
  • Meet a new neighbor 
  • Visit OPL online to see what's happening in your community.  
  • Join an online book or conversation club
