Reading Log – 3 yrs to 3rd grade

The reading log is used to keep track of how many books or how much time is spent reading during the Summer Reading Program. For each book or every 30 minutes read, one picture will be crossed off or colored in.  Color in 10 pictures to earn a summer reading prize package.

Tickets to place in a drawing for additional prizes can be earned by continuing to read.  For every additional set of 5 pictures colored in, a ticket will be earned that can be entered into a drawing for additional prizes.

Reading Log – 4th grade to 6th grade

The bingo card is used to keep track of books read and activities participated in during the Summer Reading Program.  Complete 2 bingos (vertical, horizontal, or diagonal) to earn a summer reading prize package.

Tickets to place in a drawing for additional prizes can be earned by continuing to read.  For each additional bingo, a ticket will be earned that can be entered into a drawing for additional prizes.

(One hour of reading may be substituted for any square.)

7th grade – adult

This age group will receive a ticket for each book, audiobook, or magazine checked out.  These tickets can be placed into a drawing for prizes.
