Stay reading all summer long! Log your reading time and win prizes! 

School is out, but that doesn't mean the reading stops! Starting June 15th, the Caldwell Public Library Summer Reading Program is a fun way to stay engaged and keep up those reading levels.

You will have a blast this summer with Imagine Your Story! Read, log your reading time online or with paper, and win prizes; plus fun, virtual events for all ages on our Facebook and Youtube pages.

Claim your prizes through August 31

Curbside pickup available

Check out our online catalog of Summer Reading prize books through LibraryThing. For the safety of everyone, we've created a new system to pick up your prize books:

  • Change collections by selecting the drop down menu in the top left corner. We have books for kids, teens, adults, and a bilingual collection.

  • Write down a couple of titles you're interested in, come to the library, and tell us which book you'd like the most. If it's not in stock, let us know your alternatives.

  • While our building is closed to the public, prizes can be claimed at the Mobile Makerspace located in our east parking lot.

Please help us evaluate this year's Summer Reading Program by telling us about you and your family's experience. Your feedback will help make next year even better! Click here to take the survey.
