Children's Summer Reading

The Children’s Room is gearing up for a great summer with two fantastic summer reading programs. Registration begins June 1st.


Rookie Readers:

A Family Read-Together Program Just for Preschoolers

Login to Rookie Readers programGet off the bench and learn to love reading with some of your favorite characters!

When registering, you will be asked to create a username and password to access your summer reading account. You may begin logging books on June 17th, and picking up prizes June 27th through August 13th. Please ask at the children’s desk if you have questions or need help setting up your account.

If you have more than one preschool aged child, feel free to register your whole family under one child’s name. Once registered, login and enter the titles of the books you and your children read together – it’s okay to log the same book over and over. We know that’s how many preschoolers enjoy their favorite books!

Every five books [or readings] earns each child a small prize to take home and the chance to add their name to our special Rookie Readers display. Once your family reaches 30 books each child will receive a prize and a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of our BIG prizes!


Booked Solid:

A Summer Reading Program for Students Entering Grades 1-6

You may begin logging your books on June 17th. Prizes will be available for pick up beginning June 27th.

Once you have read 600 minutes, you will have officially completed the Summer Reading Program. BUT, reading 1200 minutes will earn you a chance to win a Kindle or one of our other BIG prizes in the grand prize raffle!
