Summer Reading Program

Fizz Boom Read

It’s time to Fizz, Boom, Read at the Library with our Summer Reading Program! Preschoolers and their caregivers can keep track of the books that are read to them. School-age children who read on their own get to track the time they spend reading. Kids earn prizes as they complete their reading logs, with a special prize pack for each child who completes the program!

Registration for the fun begins June 2 and runs through July 31, 2014. Prizes can be collected through August 16, 2014.

Spark a Reaction

Summer is a great time to discover a new book, author, or genre that sparks a reaction! Adults and teens are invited to participate in the “Spark a Reaction" Summer Reading Program. Registration begins June 2 and runs through July 31. Collect prizes and rewards through August 16. Adults and teens simply track the books they read on their reading log, with prizes awarded for every two books read (up to 10 books). Participants who finish the program will have their choice of a portable electronics case or retractable ear buds, while supplies last. Teens and adults are also eligible to participate in the Eye Spy contest, where photos of local landmarks could provide a spark of recognition!
