Welcome to our 2020 Summer Reading Program, Imagine Your Story. Summer reading will start July 1, and run through August 9th. You can register and submit logs in person at the library, or on this page. For age specific information, click on the appropriate tab below.
Kid’s Summer Reading will have weekly prizes, and a grand prize at the end. You can earn chances at a fun prize with your reading logs!
For every 20 minutes you spend reading, you can fill out a reading log entry, and earn one chance at a weekly prize. The more you read, the more reading log entries you can fill out, and the more chances at a prize you get.
Your reading log entries will also be used for the grand prize at the end. You can also earn badges that give you extra chances at the grand prize at the end. You earn a badge for every 60 minutes you spend reading. If you get all 10 badges, you will get five additional entries for the grand prize!
