2023 SUMMER READING PROGRAM
Read, earn prizes, and participate in special programs all summer long!
About the program
Challenge yourself to read all summer long! Join us June 1 - August 5 for this year's Summer Reading Program. The theme is All Together Now, and we will have reading logs, bonus activities, and special programs for all ages to enjoy.
Participants set their own daily reading goal and log each day they reach that goal. Choose between a digital and paper reading log. Paper logs can be picked up at the library, or downloaded to print at home.
Once you sign up, you will get one book to keep along with the opportunity to earn more prizes:
Read for 15 days to earn a coupon pack
Read for 30 days to earn a second and third book
Read for 60 days to earn a fourth book
