Summer Reading Program

The Summer Reading program encourages a love of reading and lifelong curiosity! The program is six weeks long (June 17 through August 1). Each week there are eight challenges to choose from (based on age groups 0-18). You can sign up for Summer Reading at any time at the library or at the Pizza Party event on Sat. June 17th at noon. You can also download the weekly challenges below.

If you complete four out of eight challenges, you’ll receive one raffle ticket. If you complete all eight challenges, you will receive two raffle tickets for that week. We will have envelopes for each prize where you can drop your raffle tickets. (One prize per child/teen.)

You do not have to submit your sheets each week — we know families get super busy during the summertime! The deadline for all sheets and raffle ticket submission is Tuesday, August 1st by noon.
