Summer Reading Program



The Summer Reading Program starts on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 and ends with the Summer Reading Finale on Saturday, August 4, 2018.


The Libraries Rock! Summer Reading Program is here to get you reading all summer long! It’s simple: read and get prizes! Reading means: you read, listen to someone else read, or listen to audio-books; for every fifteen minutes you do any of these, your parent or guardian initials a circle on the reading log. If you come to a library program and bring your reading log, a librarian will initial a circle for you as well. After you fill each reading log, you get to choose a prize and receive a raffle ticket for one of the grand prizes at the Summer Reading Finale on Saturday, August 4, 2018. To win a grand prize, you must attend the party, so be sure to get your parents or guardians to mark it on your family calendar. See below for full rules!


This summer at the library, we will have many programs all week, every week! So be sure to check the calendar for all the fun activities and crafts!



Rock on at the library!
