We make summer reading as simple as possible. How is that? Just read books and win prizes! Visit any branch to pick up starter kits for our kids, teen and adult reading programs. Each program is slightly different, with its own theme, but each involves reading and enjoying your favorite books. So kick back, relax and enjoy!
Kids: Dream Big– READ!
Ages: Under 11
Your packet will contain a reading log for you to enter the titles and authors of the books you have been reading. Keep track of all the reading you do. Read whatever you like – the choice is yours!
At many of our branches, return your prize slip after reading four 4 hours and select a small prize, a free book, or a chance to enter into a drawing for a larger prize. The more you read the more prizes you earn!
Teens : Own the Night
Spend 4 or more hours reading books, ebooks, magazines, comic books, graphic novels, or listening to recorded books. Reading aloud to your little brother or sister counts too! Complete your reading log in your packet by listing what you read and recording your reading times. When you finish 4 hours of reading, you can begin another log.
Turn in your completed log at the library and enter it in a drawing for a gift card or other prize. You can turn in more than one log at a time and enter more than one drawing. Slips may be turned in until Friday, August 17 at 5:00 pm.
We invite you to read or listen to any books you enjoy and then share your special finds with others.
Sharing your views is simple! You may either fill out and hand in the short book review form provided in your packet or complete the online review form. Your review doesn’t need to be formal - just a simple sharing of your comments about the book you selected.
Remember to pick up reading packets at your library to get started. Our programs runs until August 17.
