Summer Reading Program

2021 Summer Reading Program!

This program is geared for children ranging in age from 5 to 10 years old. We aim to help children become interested in reading and keep their reading levels up over the summer through play, and crafts! The theme this year: DREAM BIG!

The program will run online through a zoom platform every Thursday from 1:00pm-2pm at the library.

Each week we will be exploring a new topic. You will receive a schedule so you know what to expect each week.

At the beginning of each week, we will have a craft package set up for each child to pick up at the library. The supplies in the package will be needed for that following Thursday!   

You will have access to filling in your weekly reading logs online and submitting them. Click here to access your WEEKLY READING LOG

There are 3 reading prizes to enter. You will receive 1 ballot each week if you submit your weekly reading log with a minimum of 150 minutes, all summer! The form will ask you which prize out of the 3 you would like to enter when you submit your reading logs.  All children who sign up, will receive a book of their choice at the end of the program.  On the last day of the program, prizes will be drawn and the winners posted.  Children will be able to pick up their book prize at the library. If your child reads a minimum of 150 minutes each week for the entire summer, he or she will receive a Library Champion sign to display in their yard 🙂

Benefits this year… accessing reading logs online will allow families to submit their weekly reading logs with ease wherever the summer takes you!

With each log entered, they received a ballot to enter into one of the 3 weekly reading prizes. Congratulations to the prize winners! Each child will get a new book for their efforts!
