2024 Summer Reading Has Begun!

June 17, 2024

It's our favorite time of year...time for our Summer Reading Program to begin! This year, our theme is "Read, Renew, Repeat". We have fun activities and programs all summer long, and all ages are encouraged to log their reading for the chance to win great prizes. See below for specifics on the Summer Reading Program for each age group.

Adults:

  • Sign up at the library, or use the Beanstack app to sign and track your reading. 
  • You receive a ticket for every book you read this summer. Submit your tickets in Beanstack to our weekly drawing, OR stop by the library to fill out your ticket for each book you read. 
  • Receive a free book AND a free ticket just for signing up!
  • Additional tickets (up to 3) can be earned for attending library programs/events.
  • We will have a drawing every week throughout the summer, each one for a gift certificate to a local restaurant.
