2015 Summer Reading Game

June 1 – August 15

THE LIBRARY'S summer reading games are fun with a purpose. They help kids avoid losing ground between school years by keeping reading skills strong, and prepare preschoolers and babies for reading by enriching their vocabulary. 

For every 10 minutes you read or listen to books, cross off or color in one box. Complete 10 boxes, then take your log to the library for a prize! Kids earn a library tote bag after 100 minutes of reading. Keep reading. Show your log to the librarians each time you go to the library.

Set your own reading goals. You don’t have to fill all 100 spaces to finish. If you want to read more, get another log! To get a prize book, turn  in this log by AUGUST 15.

  • Sign up online or at the library beginning June 1
  • Get a reading log at the library or print your own (pdf)
  • For infants through 4th grade graduates
  • Main Library & Douglass Branch

    Funding provided by the Library Friends.
