Summer Reading

What is Summer Reading?

  • A free 8-week program at branches of the Public Library that encourages babies, children, tweens, teens and adults to read (or be read to!) throughout the summer. Get signed up and pick up a Reading Log at any of our Library branches beginning June 3, or signup online beginning May 12.
  • Set your own reading goals and read whatever you like at your own pace wherever you're most comfortable. Babies, Children, Tweens & Teens: Once a week, bring your reading log to any of our Public Library Branch locations, show us your progress, and you'll earn a weekly prize! Adults will earn chances at weekly prizes at each check-in visit. All participants who turn in their completed reading logs up until the end of the Summer Reading Program will be entered into grand prize drawings for their age group held at each branch.
  • Watch this quick video to learn about the summer slide and how to keep your kids learning!

Why is Summer Reading important?

  • Studies have shown that children who read during the summer are more able to maintain their reading skills and that children who see their parents read, or who read with their parents, generally score higher on standardized tests.
  • Reading is important for everyone in the community, regardless of age, and reading is a skill that grows with practice throughout a lifetime. It's free, easy to do because you read whatever you like at your own pace, and it's a fun, easy, zero-risk way of showing your support for the Public Library and its services.
