Summer Reading 2020

June 1 – July 31

Summer Reading Is Going Virtual!

Picture3All programs and reading logs will be online this summer.  We will be using a website and app called READsquared to log reading and win prizes.  If you want to read for prizes, but can’t participate online, that’s okay!  Paper logs are available.  Fill one out and call the library.  We will enter your progress for you.

Children ages 3 – 12 (going into 6th grade) can log reading minutes and complete missions to earn points.  Once enough points are earned, you will earn a prize package that can be picked up at the library.  The points you earn through your reading journey can be used to get tickets for a raffle drawing of your choice.

Young adults (going into 7th grade) and adults can log books, magazines, or audiobooks and complete missions to earn points that can be used to get tickets for a raffle drawing of your choice.

All reading and missions must be logged by August 8.  The raffle drawing will take place August 10.  Children must earn the prize package at level 10 to be eligible for the raffle drawing. 

Any books you have access to will count for reading this year. 

Sign up for READsquared here!

Weekly Programs

Registration begins Monday, June 1.  Since programs will be online this year, there will be no limit on participation.  Registering will help us provide you with the information needed to view the program online.  You can also indicate if you would like to pick up a craft/activity bag to go with the program.  Supplies will be limited.

Times listed for each program are when the program will be made available for viewing online.  You will be able to watch the program anytime this summer.  Most programs will be available in our Summer Reading Facebook Group due to publisher restrictions.
