Read for Fun & Prizes!

Summer Reading

Summer Reading provides fun and exciting opportunities for children and teenagers to explore the world of reading and lifelong learning while helping to prevent the “summer slide” kids’ experience being out of school. Summer Reading features exciting events, such as Pawsome Readers (read to a therapy dog program), Craft Events and Special Events. We also offer Summer Reading opportunities for teens and adults!

This year's theme is "Libraries Rock" and be an online summer reading program.    You will be reading lots of books, attending fun activities and playing fun games all to earn points towards badges!  Earn badges by participating in reading and activities.  Points will earn you tickets which will be entered into a drawing for great prizes.  The more points you earn, the more tickets you receive, the more chances you have to win!  Stay tuned for more details as summer reading draws closer.  Click here to visit the summer reading website for more details and to register online starting June 1st.


 How does it work?

  • Starting on June 1st you can register online and at the library to start earning your points.
  • As you earn points, you will receive prize tickets.
  • Books, graphic novels, reading to dog, being read to, and listening to audiobooks all count!
  • When you complete the program, you will receive a prize!
  • Everyone who completes the program will be entered into a drawing for the Grand Prize.  There is one grand prize for each age group!
  • There will be multiple other prizes available.  You can choose which prize you want to put your tickets in!
