Summer reading is well under way. Hundreds of reading prizes have already been claimed, and librarians want older readers to know that the coveted Chris’ University Spirit coupons for a free summer reading logo are available this year for adults. Just read five hours, then claim a coupon as your prize. Readers take a blank shirt and the coupon to Chris’ where they will apply the unicorn-in-space logo for free.  Then you’ll have a snazzy shirt to wear when you attend some of the programs happening next week:
