How It Works

The Summer Reading Program helps kids and teens learn all summer long!  In June and July, you'll be able to participate in virtual events, track your reading, and complete fun activities.  This year, you can register for Summer Reading online, and we will be using social media to host virtual programs.

Readers of all ages are welcome to participate.  We're challenging every participant to read (or be read to) for at least 20 minutes every day.  For every week that you read at least 5 days, you will receive an entry into our grand prize drawings.  We have carefully selected prizes for three age groups:

  • ‚ÄčEmergent Readers - Ages 0-5
  • ‚ÄčIndependent Readers - Ages 6-11
  • Teen Readers - Ages 12-18
  • Adults - Ages 18+

All reading logs are due by August 1st if you want to be entered into the grand prize drawings!

Getting Started
