  • Keep track of minutes read on the paper calendar each day and enter the minutes into your account once a week or once a month.
  • One minute reading = 1 point.
  • Get more points by attending programs, playing online games, submitting reviews, and more.
  • Print a certificate and receive a free book when 1000 points is reached;  other prizes awarded at 100, 400, and 800 points.

Put reading first

Set a goal of reading 20 minutes every day. For very young children and struggling readers, try 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening.

Make reading fun all summer long!

Frequently  Asked Questions

Why should we participate?

Research shows that reading books to preschoolers prepares them so they are more ready for school than those who aren't exposed to books as much.  Picture books include more words than in our everyday language and allow children to learn about people, places, and animals not in their everyday lives. 

They learn how to handle books and love to spend time with loved ones reading.  We support this by offering a Preschool  summer reading program as well as those for older children.

Who can participate?

Parents can register babies and preschoolers for the Preschool Program.  Children too young to read by themselves are welcome to participate by having older readers read to them. 

Children ages 5-11 can register for the Children’s program and children and teens ages 12-18 can register for the Teen program.

What is the goal of the summer reading program?

We want children to make reading a daily habit because they have developed a love for reading and stories.

Can audio books be counted?

Yes, and this is recommended for all readers (especially for families to share a story and for those who struggle with reading).  They can hear how unfamiliar words are pronounced and they still hear a story. 

Can time be recorded even if a book isn't finished?
Yes - ten minutes of reading is reading.

Can my child join the program after its official start date?
Yes. And if you can remember any reading that was done after school was out, you’re welcome to go back and count that.  The earlier you register and start reading, the more likely you are to reach the 1000 point goal.

Can reading that was done before the official start date be counted?
Yes, summer reading started for school children the day they got out of school.

Maze Runner
by James Dashner

View in Library Catalog

This book was VERY good!!! At first, I didn't like it because it was just alot of events you think are important, but are not. Once I hit Chapter 30, it turned amazing. This book has everything I want in a book; suspense, comedy, intensity. Not only that, but the ending was amazing. The characters were perfect. Maze Runner is a must-read book. I can't wait to read the next four books!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thidwick The Big-hearted Moose
by Dr. Seuss

View in Library Catalog

I like this book because it is very energetic. It's about how he gets rid of the pests on his horns. I learn that you have to get rid of pests right away, because sometimes they will be pests all the time. Thidwick was starving because of the pests. My favorite part of the book is when he gets back to herd. My favorite illustration is when he only has the bingle big on his horns. Moose and deer have antlers not horns.
