Children's Summer Reading 2016

June 13 through July 30
For children going into Kindergarten through Grade 5


Children going into kindergarten through fifth grade may join the Summer Reading Program by coming into the Library to sign up or by registering online.  Log your reading online, and stop by the Library to pick up your reward and another armload of books, audiobooks, Playaways, or choose an eBook or audiobook online and download in seconds.  Check out Hoopla for a wide selection of audiobooks, accessible through a special Kids Mode portal.

Organized Summer Reading activities run through July 30th, but children can continue to record their reading and earn incentives until the day before school starts.

STARTING June 13th, you can log into the program from anywhere you have the Internet - at home, at the Library, on vacation, even from a Smartphone. It's fast - it's easy - it's green!

Summer Reading Program volunteers and staff members will also be standing by at the Library to help you log your reading, give out prizes and listen to you talk about your reading.

  • If a book has 100 or more pages, it counts as two books, 200 or more pages as three books, etc.
