Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Do I have to read for a certain amount of time? Not this year. Our goal this summer is to get you familiar with all the changes at the library and to explore new materials. You are welcome to read as much or as little as you like as long as you give each item you check out a try.
 

Do I have to read every day? You do not have to read every day. Although, we think it is a great idea if you do! 

Do I have to read Library Books? Yes. This year, our Summer Reading goal is to help you get familiar with the new layout of the Children's Department and with some of the cool new materials we have to offer. In order to "Build Your Bundles", you must visit the library and check out library materials.

I cannot read yet. Can someone read to me? Yes. Anyone can read to you and help you build your bundles.
 

How often should I come to the library for Summer Reading? We suggest visiting the library once a week for Summer Reading to build a bundle. Always remember to bring your reading chart!

What happens if I lose my reading chart? You will have to start the reading chart over from the beginning. Always keep your reading chart in a safe place.
