Pick up the perfect book with GR Reads


Summertime is the perfect time to dive into a new book. Every year, the Grand Rapids Public Library puts on its summer reading program, “GR Reads” — pairing interesting books with fun and engaging activities.

The summer reading program for adults kicked off June 1 and runs through August 31. Participants can read any of the ten selected books and participate in 28 free programs throughout the summer. Programs include birdwatching, movies, author visits, bicycle tours and more.
