Summer Reading at the Main Library
Creating a Community of Readers, One Child at a Time
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.
