Summer Reading for Babies, Children, & Teens

Our summer reading challenge starts the day after Memorial Day and ends on the last Wednesday in July. Any age, every age -- you are all welcome to participate.  

Teens can sign up as well as babies and children! Grown-ups can fill out a raffle slip for each teen or adult book they check out for a chance to win weekly prizes!

  • Count BOOKS if you finish your books in less than an hour.
    Best for picture book readers & listeners who want ALL the beads.
  • Count HOURS if your books take an hour or more to finish.
    Challenging goal for skilled & fluent bookworms. You'll need to read about an hour a day to hit 50 hours before the end!

The Summer Reading Hub opens at the library on the first Monday in June.
Our regular hours: Mon.-Thurs. 10a-8p, Fri.-Sat. 9a-5p, Sun. closed.
Print or pick up a Game Sheet to get started. Bring your sheet to the library to check in and win prizes. Anything you've read since Memorial Day 5/27/24 counts. We don't need a list of titles!

  • If your Goal is Read 50 books, then each circle stands for one book.
  • If your Goal is Read 50 hours, then each circle stands for one hour.
