Library reading program aimed at adults

DOWNEY - The Downey City Library is offering a program this summer to encourage adults to do more leisure reading."Master the Art of Reading," which runs through Aug. 1, is the theme for the free independent reading program for adults. Adults can register for the program starting Monday. Participants will receive a "Book Bingo" card and will be awarded a free prize after completing five boxes in a row. "This is a fun and easy way for adults to brush up on their literary skills," said Librarian Nancy Munoz. "You will be setting a great example for children and teens while you catch up on the latest bestsellers or classic books." Munoz said the program is ideal for anyone who has a few minutes each day to read. "You will enrich your life by discovering the reading habit," she said. "Even if you have a busy schedule or are on a budget, you will benefit from this program." "Master the Art of Reading" is sponsored by the Friends of the Downey City Library and community donations. To register, call (562) 904-7360, ext. 132, or visit the library.
