Summer Reading Club

2015 Events & Activities

An independent annual 6 week reading program
for children ages 3 - 12 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 to the Rhythm
June 8 - July 18, 2015

Sign up begins May 18th!
Pick up your family registration packet at the
Main or Branch Library.

How it works...

Earn prizes by reading!

Ages 3-5: 30 books
Ages 6-7: 25 books
Ages 8-9: 20 books
Ages 10-11+: 15 books

If a book is over 100 pages, then each additional
100 pages in that book equals 1 additional book!

For every 5 books read, choose a prize from our
treasure box!

Earn a halfway prize when half of your goal is met,
and a goal prize when your goal is reached!

Grade-schoolers can answer a different question
each week for a chance to win a weekly prize!

Children who finish their reading goal by the end
of summer reading will be entered into a grand
prize drawing!

July 31st is the last day to claim prizes.
