Join us for the 2022 Summer Reading Program!

All ages--Birth to 5, K-5, Teens, and Adults--are encouraged to complete your own reading logs! Each age group has their own log, and each contains different reading ideas or challenges. This year's program gives you a chance to both enjoy your favorites and explore new things on your way to earning prizes! Find more details and sign up information for your age group below.

The Birth to 5 Summer Reading Program is simple this year--read 100 books of your choice! Track your reading on your own by filling out the 100 Books coloring log, or tracking your reading online.

Your 100 books will be counted toward the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program, so you can continue to read for prizes year-round!

Dive into reading to open up oceans of possibilities! This summer, kick off your reading adventure on June 3. For every 20 minutes you read, mark off a shell on your reading log. As you track your reading down the shell path, you will reach special dates when you can pick up small treasures for your hard work. Complete the log to claim your final treasure, earn a grand prize raffle ticket, and receive an invitation to the finisher's party. Earn bonus raffle tickets by completing sets of missions. The grand prize drawing will take place after August 12.
