What is Summer Reading?

A free, fun program for kids birth-high school. Kids and teens do activities at home or at the library and earn the chance to win prizes! Sign-up online by selecting your program below or visit your local library to register and see a list of programs. Kids who register online should visit the library to pick up their Summer Reading materials. The teen program can be completed entirely online but teens should visit the library in order to pick up their free Keys ticket and Passport.

What can we win?

Just for signing up, kids and teens are registered for the Grand Prize drawing: a chance to win a trip to the Great Wolf Lodge Waterpark! Kids are also registered for a chance to win a Kindle Fire, and teens could win a Playstation 4.
