Summer Reading Club

libraries rock

The Summer Reading Club is an incentive program in which children read for pleasure and earn medals for their hard work. The program runs the whole summer, June through August, and there is a new and exciting theme every year. 

The Summer Reading Club is open to children of all ages:

  • Preschoolers may join as read-to-me participants and get credit for books read to them by parents and older siblings.

  • School age children (K to 5) mark their calendars for each day they read for at least 30 minutes.

  • Teens (6th grade +) mark their calendars for each day they read for at least 60 minutes.

Summer Programs (June -early August) – Attendance is optional but highly recommended. Programs begin the last week in June.

  • Messy Mondays – Children of all ages create do-it-yourself arts and crafts all day while supplies last.

  • Infomaniacs - Children in grades 2-5 join a librarian to learn about science and history topics through books, experiments, and crafts.

  • Tell-Tale Tuesdays – Stop in for storytime at 9:30 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 1:00 p.m.

  • Wacky Wednesdays – A different, surprise, hands-on activity every week.

  • Thrilling Thursdays – A variety of professional children's performers present 60 minute programs at 2:00 or 7:00.

  • Fun Fridays - A special program just for preschoolers that includes stories and crafts.
