Summer Reading

Summer Reading
For All Ages

Summer Reading has begun! Now you can head to READsquared to register and start logging your reading! Or visit our Events Page to see what virtual events are coming up, including our exciting guest performers every Monday at 2 pm starting June 8th! Find all the details on how this year’s Summer Reading works right here:

Read for Raffle Entries!

Read at least 100 minutes (or 200 for teens and adults) to earn your first entry! For every 100 minutes (200 for teens) that you read, you will complete a level and earn a virtual raffle ticket. There are a total of nine levels. All reading must be tracked on READsquared by Sunday night in order to be eligible for the weekly raffle drawings.

Activities

There is more fun on READsquared too! Look for activities to do with your family in two places, under the Activity Card tab and Events tab. Every activity you complete earns you an additional virtual raffle ticket into the drawing for the week. A different Activity Card full of new activities and virtual events will be available each Monday!

Prizes and Buttons

Prizes for the week will be posted on READsquared and our Facebook page. Your entries will go toward whichever program you are signed up for. For example, if you are 10 and in the kid’s program, look for the kid’s prize. The more activities you do, the more chances you have to win. Kids and teens can also earn buttons and a free book. For every 100 minutes (200 for teens) that you read, you will earn a virtual badge on READsquared that can then be collected as a real button at the end of the summer. Read a total of 900 minutes (1800 for teens) to collect all 10 buttons! Read at least 600 minutes (1200 for teens) to get a free book that is yours to keep forever.

Important Dates

Reading must be completed between June 1 and August 1. Logging on READsquared ends on August 8. Pick up the prizes you earned at your library between August 3 - 22.

Virtual Events for All Ages

It wouldn’t be Summer Reading without exciting guest performers, who have adapted their shows for a live online audience this year! With raptors, reptiles, sled dogs, explosive science and more, you don’t want to miss these live events every Monday at 2 pm. Check the events page in advance to find out how to join in! As an added bonus, each time you attend a virtual Monday event, a secret code will be revealed. Enter the code in the logging section of READsquared to earn an entry into the weekly raffle drawing, a virtual badge and physical button.

In addition to the special Monday events, we have prepared a full lineup of virtual events for all ages, including favorites like music and movement, crafts, book clubs, teen events and more! You can get access to all of the virtual events through the events page on our website.
