Summer Reading Program Begins for All Ages

June 1

Summer Reading Program registration for all ages begins on June 1. This year’s theme is “Oceans of Possibilities”. Read all through the summer to earn great prizes! We have four free programs to choose from: Infant & Toddler (birth-2 years), Kids (3 years – 5th grade), and Teens (grades 6-12), and Adult.

The programs will conclude on Saturday, July 30, 2022. This is the last day to get Youth prizes and the last day to submit Adult entries. Grand Prize drawings for all age groups will take place on Monday, August 1, 2022.

Youth Programs – How It Works

  • Come to the library (or bookmobile) to pick up a reading/literacy log on or after June 1.
  • Every day complete 20 minutes of reading (or for babies, one early literacy activity) and mark off one circle on the log.
  • Bring your log back to the library (or bookmobile) and collect your prizes.

Early Literacy Program For Children Ages Birth to 2 years and their Caregivers

Research shows that talking, singing, reading, writing, counting, and playing with your young child jump-starts your child’s communication and pre-reading skills. Complete fun activities from the log like dancing, walk & talks, and pretend play to earn prizes.

  • Receive bubbles when picking up your early literacy log
  • Complete 10 days of activities to receive a free book and an entry into a grand prize drawing

The grand prize drawing will be for a Fat Brain Toys Wooden Marble Run.
