Summer Reading Program 2021

June 1 – August 31
Kids 5-12 will be able to earn beads for a chain necklace or key chain for the minutes they read! There are different beads for different amounts read, plus beads can be exchanged for more valuable beads. Once your child reaches 4 hours, they will receive a brag tag plus an entry to one of the prize kits. Then, keep going to earn even MORE beads and MORE prize entries! Kids can stop in anytime to update their necklace or key chain and keep their log until they complete it.

Every child will receive a free book when they pick up their first log.
