Summer Reading for Kids

How to Participate in Summer Reading 2017:

  • The Summer Reading Program for Children is free and open to kids from 3 years old to 4th grade. This program is a fun way to engage children in reading while they are home for the summer. It provides families the opportunity to discover great books and get credit for the books they read alone or together. Click here for Summer Reading programs for Tweens and Teens. Click here for Summer Reading programs for adults.
  • Starting June 21st, you may register your child for summer reading by filling out the registration form in the Children’s Room. When you register your child, you will receive a summer calendar, as well as a listing of summer events
  • For every day that your child reads, or is read to, for at least 15 minutes, place a check mark on that day on the calendar
  • Once your child has read for 10 days (they do not have to be consecutive days), they are eligible to come into the library and choose a book to donate to our Children’s Room collection under their name. Staff will add the child’s name to a book plate at the beginning of the book.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I have to come to the library every week?
While most families do seem to have a regularly scheduled day for visiting the library, weekly participation is not required.  We recommend doing whatever is best for your family.

We missed registration week, are we out of luck?
Not at all! You can register and pick up your packet through the end of July.

My child is in school, but he’s not reading well yet.  Can he participate?
This program is a great motivator for children who are emerging readers!  You can choose your child’s reading materials based on their individual needs and reading level.  You may choose to read books to your child, to have your child read books to you, or to switch off who reads which book.
