Summer Reading 2020



Kids going into grades PreK - 6 are invited to sign-up for our "Imagine Your Story" themed Summer Library Adventure 2020. This year will be special - we will not only focus on reading, but also provide ideas for fun, educational activities for the whole family. We are excited to offer this innovative program for our community!

For the reading portion of the Summer Adventure we will be doing our Read and Bead reward system. Children will log their reading by keeping track of the minutes they spend with books, ebooks, audiobooks, eaudio books, magazines, and other online reading. Each 20 minutes will equal one bead for their necklaces. At different intervals children will receive special beads and brag tags too! All prizes will be "surprise" prizes distributed at our drive-thru window.

In addition to the reading portion of the program we will have challenges for children to complete. New challenges will be available every Monday and Thursday, and the kids have all summer to complete them for special beads, brag tags and other small prizes.
