 June 15 through Aug 17

Read to earn prizes!  Programs and activities for ages 0-12!

How Does It Work?

Children are encouraged to read at least 20 minutes each day. For every 2 hours that a child reads or is read to, both a prize and a raffle ticket are earned.

  • While quantities last, the initial prize that a child will earn is a Dig Into Reading t-shirt.
  • After that, it’s BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS!  Start or add to your home library with a wide selection of books for ages 0-12 —board books, picture books, early readers, chapter books and nonfiction books.
  • Also, each child may fill out a raffle ticket for one of the grand prizes being raffled at the end of the summer.  Every 2 hours of reading earns a child one chance to win.

GRAND PRIZES:   (4) Bicycles

      (20) $25 Barnes & Noble Gift Certificates

How Do I Get Started?

Beginning Saturday, June 15, stop by the library, fill out a Summer Reading registration card and pick up a Dig into Reading! bag that includes a listing of all summer activities, a Dig Into Reading! pencil, temporary tattoo, bookmark, and a reading log to keep track of your reading each day.

Color a square on the reading log for every 20 minutes read.  When you have 2 hours logged (6 squares colored in), bring your reading log to the Children’s Department to receive a sticker on the “prize” square of your log.  You may then choose your book prize and fill out a raffle ticket for one of the grand prizes.
