Summer Reading 2018

 

4 years old through 6th grade

Have you always wanted to visit the court of King Arthur or the wild savannahs of Africa or how about the shiny robot future? Well, this summer you can because Reading Takes You Everywhere! Our 2018 Reading Takes You Everywhere Summer Reading Program invites all children from age 4 years old through 6th grade to keep their minds active this summer and earn fun rewards at the same time. Children simply read (their choice of material), log the number of minutes and collect prizes—all while building brain power! And there is no cost for Summer Reading thanks to our community and business partners so everyone can join. Sign-up begins May 14th at the library. Take your brain on a trip this summer because Reading Takes You Everywhere!

 

Birth through 3 Years

We know your littlest ones like to be included in all the Summer Reading fun and prizes, so little ones birth through age 3 can join our Rubber Ducky Club. Simply read 30 books to your little one and they also will get a prize. Sign-up begins May 14 at the library. This program can be used in conjunction with our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program, too!

 

7th Grade through High School

All teens 7th grade through high school are encouraged to enter our Teen Summer Reading program. This is your chance to read what you want to read, and enter your name into a weekly prize drawing each time you finish a book. Prize drawings happen every Saturday starting June 9 and ending July 28. Prizes include gift cards to Knight’s
Action Park, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, AMC Theaters, and more. A Grand Prize will be drawn on July 28 for a $50 Best Buy gift card. Sign-up begins May 14.

 

Book Camp!

For more reading fun, attend our newest summer activity, BOOK CAMP. Each day, children will participate in games, crafts, and reading activities centered on the Reading Takes You Everywhere theme. Children may go on an African safari, discover the wonders of Down Under, and much more - all without leaving the library. Book Camp will cost $1 for district residents and $5 for non-residents. For children 4 years old to 4th grade we offer two sessions; you choose either the June or July session. Children in 5th and 6th grades attend one extended session in June. Please see the available dates below. Registration is required and begins May 14. Register early as the number of participants is limited.

 

**Please be aware that signing your child up for Book Camp does not sign your child up for the Summer Reading Program, but children are encouraged to
participate in BOTH programs!
