Summer Reading Program

The Summer Reading Program is a six week challenge that starts in June and ends in July. The challenge is to read a minimum of 20 minutes per day. You may pick up the 12hr reading logs in the library, when completed you can return them back into the library for a prize. The person that completes the most reading logs will receive a grand prize at the end of the six week challenge. Reading 20 minutes per day helps promote a healthy mind and helps to prevent "summer slide" for school age children.

There is a choice of four age groups:

Newborn - 5yrs

6yrs - 12yrs

13yrs - 17yrs

18yrs - Adult

*Library will register and log minutes for all participants and reading to infants and toddlers gives minutes to both child and adult.
