How It Works

Challenge yourself to a summer of reading. Fight summer boredom or reconnect with your favorite pastime and earn prizes along the way.

Can I join?

Yes! All ages are welcome.

When do I start?

Register and log your progress between June 1 and August 3, 2019.

What should I read?

Read anything. Read everything. Read aloud to others or to yourself. Books, ebooks, audiobooks, magazines...it all counts. Want some suggestions? Request a personalized recommendation. Or try these suggestions.

What do I do?

Ages 0-17
Set your reading goal, then challenge yourself to meet it. Just for signing up, teens receive a coupon for a cookie/chips. (Available at the table in the children's area beginning June 1.)

Ages 18+
Read books, listen to audiobooks or read aloud to others. 

Why should I participate?

Reading can reduce stress, increase empathy for others and keep your mind sharp. And it's fun!

Ages 0-17
Meet your goal = earn a book (beginning June 8)

Ages 18+
1 book read = earn a chance at weekly & grand prize drawings (drawings for $10 and $25 gift cards for area restaurants and stores will begin )
