In-person registration will open on May 29 at all library locations.

Challenge yourself to top the charts and turn books, library programs and do-it-yourself activities into gift cards, bikes, tech toys and free food.

How the club works

You can finish the program by reading for the required time, or by doing a combination of reading, attending library programs or taking part in weekly adventures.

Reading

  • Little kids (ages 5 & under) can complete the program after 7.5 hours of reading
  • Big kids (ages 6-11) can complete the program after 10 hours of reading
  • Teens (ages 12-18) and Adults can complete the program after 15 hours of reading

Attending programs

Attending programs counts toward completion time, and we have a lot planned at all three library locations. Check out the programs on our calendar.

Weekly adventures

These do-it-yourself activities – like using household items to create music or writing a song – can help you finish the Summer Reading Club and snag some great prizes. Complete an adventure each week and bring the week's ticket to the Library to be entered into a weekly prize drawing. There will be two winners at each library every week.
