Ages: 0 to 18 • Co-Ed


Children between ages of 0 and 18 read and record the amount of time that they read. Library books, books from home, ebooks, magazines, graphic novels and audiobooks count toward your goal. Incentive prizes are awarded at 1, 5, 10, 15 and 20 hours of reading. Children who are unable to read may log minutes and earn prizes by listening to anyone who reads aloud to them. The summer reading program now also inludes an "activities" component, which encourages children to engage with the library in different ways than just reading.

The summer reading program helps prevent the "summer slide" by keeping children engaged with reading and books.
