Summer Fun for Adults: Let's Play!

Week 2 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 we're celebrating the value of "play"! Even grown-ups can get a lot of value from playing. Do you love sports? Games? Hiking, kayaking, or riding roller coasters? Maybe you have a secret passion for Legos? Or perhaps you like telling goofy stories or rough housing with your kids? No matter your flavor, playing keeps us young and stimulates our brains. On Monday, take a look at the Advice for Readers blog to find your guide to books and other OPL resources exploring how “play” enriches our lives.

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:
