Kids Summer Reading

The Summer Reading Club is a free self-paced program in which children choose their reading level and keep a log of the amount of time they spend reading (or are read to) each day.   The Summer Reading Club is open to kids ages 0-12.

You may pick up challenge logs for the Summer Reading Club at the Children’s Desk. The last day to turn in a reading log is Friday, July 19. 

For every  3 segments finished on the reading wheel (or hour read) you get an entry into the prize drawing.  The more you read, the more chances you’ll have to win!  Reading materials include books, comics/graphic novels, magazines, audio books and ebooks.

Cosmic Challenges

We also have extra stellar challenges for you to complete this year! For every 3 challenges completed, you earn a entry into the prize drawing. Challenges include doing something nice for someone, reading with a flashlight, drawing a picture, and more!

Children’s Events

See Kid’s Events on the Library Calendar for the complete summer calendar, or check out the Library Facebook event here. All events are free. We will be issuing tickets for kid’s events. Ticket distribution begins one hour before the start of the program. For everyone’s safety, only ticket holders will be allowed to attend the program. Tickets are first come, first served.  Tickets are free. Everybody needs a ticket, even grown-ups and infants.

Tickets are broken into A, B, C groups and will be called Southwest Airlines style-  A tickets first, B tickets, then C tickets.  This allows you and your children to stay downstairs to play and check out books instead of waiting in line.  Just listen for your letter to be called on the PA system and head upstairs to the program.  

Groups

Due to the popularity of our programs we can no longer accommodate large groups such as churches, camps, daycares, schools, or youth groups. We apologize for any inconvenience.
