Welcome!

Over the course of the summer, through the wonderful world of reading, we will explore a limitless world of information, entertainment and adventure at your library - and in books!
The theme for this year's Summer Reading Program is
Build a Better World.

Purpose of the Summer Reading Program

We want to encourage children to read and use the library resources during the school vacation times to meet their own learning and recreational needs.  The experience should be relaxing and pleasurable.  We want children to share books and stories in the company of others and to discover the satisfaction of reading alone or being read to.  While the library does not provide formal reading instruction, it does provide numerous opportunities for children and their families to discover the joy of reading.

Who can participate in the SRP

Youngsters from toddlers to teens can read books, listen to stories, attend programs and participate in any of the many free programs. Some programs have limited numbers and ages, so look at the schedule for details. A valid library card is needed to check out books, but it is not needed to attend programs.

How the SRP Works

 Children check out library books, read them at their leisure and record the reading times on the reading log provided by LitKeeper.

Guppies is for children ages 5 & under. Prizes will be awarded after reading 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 books.

Sharks is for children entering 1st - 4th grades. Prizes will be awarded based on the amount of time read. Recommended goal: 10-15 minutes a day.

Stingrays is for children entering 5th - 12th grades. Prizes will be awarded based on the amount of time read. Recommended goal: 30 - 60 minutes a day.

All readers will be able to attend the end of the SRP party on July 28.

 

Please Note

          Children 10 years of age and younger must be accompanied by a responsible individual 16 years of age or older at  all times.
