Summer Reading Club

2016 Events & Activities

An independent annual 6 week reading program
for children ages 3 - 11 held at the library each
summer (twelve-year-olds have the option of
signing up for the teen program if preferred).
Pre-registration is required.

Read for the Win!

Thank you to all of our sponsors and
participants for making 2016 Summer
Reading a success!

How It Works

Read to complete your summer reading goal
of 15 hours before summer reading ends.

When you come to the library, find your book
chart and stamp how many hours you've read.
Bring your chart to the check out desk for the
librarian to mark and pick a prize from our
treasure box for every 2 1/2 hours you read!

Other Great Prizes...

Halfway Prize

Goal Prize

Weekly Drawings

Grand Prizes

PLUS other special prizes you can learn about
when you sign up for summer reading!
