Children's Summer Reading

The sun is warm and school is out - you know what that means! It’s time for Summer Reading at the WPL! This year the Children’s Room has two fantastic new programs so kids of all ages (babies included!) can join in the fun. Please call or stop by the Children’s Room with any questions. We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Click on the buttons below to register and login to your summer reading account. When registering, you will be asked to create a username and password. You may register for a summer reading account anytime, but won’t be able to start logging books to your account until the last day of school, Friday, June 19th. Prizes will be available for pick-up in the Children’s Room beginning Monday, June 29th. Please ask at the children’s desk if you have any questions or have trouble setting up your account.

Important Note to Parents:
You will need to verify your child’s account via email before it can be used. An email will be automatically sent to the email address you provide when creating an account. You will also have the option to set up a parent account which will allow you to access all of your children’s summer reading accounts on one page. Please call or stop by the Children’s Desk if you have questions or encounter any problems with the set up process.

Build on a Book:

A Family Read Together Program Just for Preschoolers

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! If you have more than one preschool aged child, feel free to register your whole family under one child’s name.

Every five books [or readings] earns each child a small prize to take home and the chance to write their name on a puzzle piece to add to our construction site. 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!

This Old Book:

A Summer Reading Program for Kids Entering Grades 1-6

Open book with login buttonOnce your summer reading account is created (and confirmed by a parent), you will be able to start logging how much time you spend reading this summer. This year’s online program will keep track of both the titles of the books you read and the amount of time you spend reading.

100 minutes of reading will earn you your first prize. As you continue to read and log your books, you will earn more prizes and unlock fun challenges! Once you have read and logged 600 minutes, you will have officially completed the Summer Reading Program. BUT, if you continue to read, there are more prizes in store! Reading 1200 minutes will earn you a chance to win a Kindle or one of our other BIG prizes!
