Summer Reading Challenge: Reading Takes You Everywhere
Every year, during the summer months, the Library promotes reading and holds events for all ages. Kids, teens, and adults will keep their reading skills strong during the summer by playing in the summer reading challenge. All who finish their challenges earn prizes for participating. Families can also join us for wonderful performances and activities all summer long.
Take the challenge. Adults, kids and teens, it's easy! Every 30 minutes you read brings you closer to a prize! Kids and teens read 15 hours and earn a free book of their choice. Adults read 15 hours and earn a $10 fine waiver. Pre-readers participate by enjoying books with an adult, playing with puppets and enjoying nursery rhymes.Everyone earns a free tote bag after completing 15 hours of reading.
There are prizes. In addition to the prizes you'll win for reading, each week you will automatically be entered into a raffle, and have a chance to win prizes like sporting tickets, ferry passes, ice cream and other goodies. Raffle drawings occur every Monday beginning June 11 through July 30.
Let's get started! Beginning June 1st click here to sign up and keep track of your reading progress.
