How It Works
The Summer Reading Program will take place over the course of 6 weeks between June 15th and July 24th.
Grab and Go Bags contain 3 weeks worth of activities and reading logs. You will pick one up on the week of June 15th and the second on the week of July 6th. Grab and Go bags available as long as they last.
Each activity will correspond with a different theme each week.
Tune in on Facebook or our website each Monday to receive the week's mission, craft details, and find out other activities happening that week. See full details in Calendar. Please note, a few programs have "live" times, but most of them will be accessible anytime after they are posted.
Complete a reading log bingo sheet by doing one of the activities while reading for 20 minutes. Get 5 in a row for BINGO!
Turn in the logs at the end of the summer reading program for a prize bag. Additionally, each log will act as an entry into our grand prize drawings, so don't forget to write your name and phone number on your logs!
