Summer Reading

Libraries Rock: Summer Reading 2018

The 2018 edition of our annual summer reading program ended July 27. Check back in the spring for information specific to Summer Reading 2019.

Each summer, we offer three reading programs for youth from birth to grade 12: Baby Bookworms, Kids Read, and Teens Read. Kids and teens win prizes as they track the number of days they read at least 20 minutes, while babies do early literacy activities.

Baby Bookworms

Birth through age 2

Kids Read

Ages 3 through 5th grade

Teens Read

Students entering grades 6-12

Did you know students can lose 2 months of reading achievement in the summer if they don't keep their mind sharp? Help us build a better world of strong readers by encouraging your child to read regularly through the school break!

Summer Teen Volunteers

The Library's summer reading program would not be possible without the help of dedicated teen volunteers! Information about the summer teen volunteer program will become available in the spring.
