Kids and Teens:

  • Log in and enter how much you are reading each day on the summer reading website.
  • Win a prize each week that you read a total of 60 minutes or more!

Pre-Readers: (new program this year!)

  • Pick up a Rubber Ducky Bingo Card from either library or download August card here
  • Complete and color all of the early literacy activities on your card, then visit the library to choose a free board book!

Listening Counts:

  • All ages can participate in summer reading. Listening to audio books counts towards minutes read. Caregivers can record time spent reading to children. If one child reads to another, that counts as well. All types of reading and listening can be counted towards minutes read.
