The 2017 Summer Reading program runs from June 25 - August 19.
Read all summer long and earn weekly prizes and entries for the grand prize drawings held on or after August 19.
Children who are not yet reading on their own are welcome to join summer reading with the help of their families. Families work together to complete a game board of 14 early literacy activities to help develop the skills necessary for reading. This club is for infants, toddlers, and any other children who cannot read independently. Game boards are available at the library or online. Completed boards may be turned in for a small prize and one entry to the grand prize drawing at the end of the summer.
This club is for kids who can read independently and may include children in preschool up to 4th grade. For every 5 books that are read, participants can choose a small prize, and will receive one entry into the grand prize drawing at the end of the summer. Participates can pick up a reading log at the library, or track their progress online.
This club is for tweens and teens. Children in grades 5-12 with earn a prize just for signing up for summer reading. Plus, every book you read and review will earn one entry to the grand prize drawing at the end of the summer. You may also earn small prizes for every 5 books read.
