DOWNEY - This summer, the Downey City Library is offering a program to encourage adults to do leisure reading."Novel Destinations" is the theme for the free independent reading program which runs through July 30. Participants will receive a "book bingo" card and a free prize after completing five boxes in a row. "Adults can take a literary vacation, filled with fictional travels and imaginative characters," said librarian Nancy Munoz. "You will be setting a great example for children and teens while you catch up on the latest bestsellers or classics." Muzon said the program is ideal for anyone who has even 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." The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Downey City Library and community donations.
