2019 Summer Reading Program

Our 2019 Summer Reading Program will run from June 10-August 16 and our Kick-Off Party will be on June 17th at 10 AM! Click here for a full list of our fun summer events for kids and teens!

Signing Up

Signing up for the program is easy - just come to the library and pick up a Summer Reading Program bag, starting June 10.  We have one for teens and one for children.  Everything you need to get started is included in the bag!

Tracking Your Reading

For Children: For every 15 minutes read, place 1 sticker onto your tracking sheet. Every 10 stickers equals 1 level. After each level, come to the library to pick up coupons and enter a prize drawing. Finish all 5 levels (before August 16) to get a free book and an invitation to our Summer Reading Program Finisher's Party!

For Teens: Check a box on your reading log for every 30 minutes you read. For every 4 hours read, come in to the library to pick up coupons and enter a prize drawing. Finish all 5 levels (before August 16) to get a free book and an invitation to our Summer Reading Program Finisher's Party!

Prizes

For every level they finish, kids and teens will earn coupons to local businesses. They will also have an opportunity to enter a prize drawing. Winners of the prize drawings will be announced at the Summer Reading Program Finisher's Party, though you do not need to be present to win.
