About the program

Challenge yourself to read all summer long! Join us June 1 - August 6 for this year's Summer Reading Program. The theme is Oceans of Possibilities, and we will have reading logs, bonus activities, and special programs for all ages to enjoy.

Reading Logs

Participants set their own daily reading goal and log each day they reach that goal. Choose between a digital and paper reading log. Paper logs can be picked up at the library, or you can download one from our website to print off at home. Click here to preview available book prizes.

Once you sign up, you will get one book to keep along with the opportunity to earn more prizes:

  • Read for 15 days to earn a second book and a coupon pack

  • Read for 30 days to earn a third book and to be entered into our grand prize drawing

  • Read for 60 days to earn a fourth book
