Beginning on June 17th, check off one emoji on your reading chart for each day that you read 20 minutes or more.
Each emoji you check off allows you to play one station in our hilarious, joke inspired Summer Reading Room.
Along the way, you will collect coin stamps, which you can use to trade for cool new prizes at the Prize Station.
Please play frequently, once per week is advised. Do not wait until the last week to play all 45 turns.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Can I read longer than 20 minutes? Yes, but 20 minutes is all we require.
 

If I read 60 minutes does that count for 3 days? No, you can read for as long as you want, but it only counts for one day.
 

Do I have to read every day?  No, but each day that you read allows you to progress one space forward on our reading room.

I cannot read yet. Can someone read to me? Yes. Anyone can read to you!

How often should I come to the library for Summer Reading? We suggest visiting the library once a week for Summer Reading. 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.


When can I buy prizes with my  Coins? You can buy prizes at the Prize Station in the Children’s Department any time between June 17th and August 9th at 4:00 p.m. The Prize Station will be closed by August 10th and you will no longer be able to buy prizes.

Is there a program for children birth to three? Yes! Check out out Rubber Ducky Club.
