Our Summer Reading Program begins on July 8!
Summer is here and the reading is easy! No matter what your age, we have a summer program for you: kids, families, teens, and adults.
This year we are utilizing a new platform for summer reading called ReadSquared. After signing up for a free account, you will be able to see your program's challenges and keep track of your progress. We also have suggested reading lists that link to our catalog, making placing holds for take out service a breeze!
When you sign up and log in you can choose the program you want – Children, Teen or Adult. Each program has Missions you can complete for badges and prizes.
For children you may choose one or both of the Summer Reading Programs to complete by August 22 and earn a paperback book or books.
One program you can choose is the Summer Reading Challenge Mission. You may download the challenge, access the activities online, and/or pick up a printed challenge when you order books through our Take Out service. 8 of the choices must be completed for you to finish. You may come to the Children's Room door in the garden area between August 22 and August 26 to pick your prize or call 640-3268 to make arrangements with a librarian.
The other program requires completing 5 activities listed under the other Missions. You will be required to respond with a sentence or picture when you are finished with each one. Follow directions above to get your free book.
Teens can select the teen program and follow the directions for completing various Missions. Teens may also complete the printed flyer available at Take Out Service and complete 5 of the challenges to earn a prize.
Adults can access our program online. You can complete various missions by taking advantage of library services. Those who complete missions will be entered into a raffle to win a 32GB iPad.
Try it out and have fun!
