Summer Reading Programs 2020

Summer Reading Program

This year's Summer Reading theme is "Imagine your Story!" Our programs will look a little different this year but we have a ton of fun things planned for youths and adults!

Summer Reading activities begin June 1st


We are asking you to challenge yourself this summer. Set a goal to read 10 books! 25 books! You pick the right number for you. Or, make a goal to help a neighbor once a week!

Maybe, make lunch for your little brother or sister every Monday! Help with more chores at home!

You can even have reading goals AND help at home. Whatever it is, do your best to finish your goals or challenges.

What You Can Do!

  • Track your challenges and goals on the log we deliver to you along the bus route (until June 9th)!

  • Beginning June 1st, pick up Summer Reading materials and SWAG at your bus stop or at the library during your Take Out appointment.

  • Read! Help your family! Do some good deeds!

  • In September, let us know what you accomplished this summer and you'll get your prize!

Teens & Adults

We are raffling off themed gift baskets this year (1 per month) to our adult Summer Reading participants! Raffle tickets, book logs, Book Bingo! cards, and instructions will be handed out during Library Take Out hours.

In addition to monthly prize baskets, we will be supplying monthly kits with crafts and activities for adults. Four weekly kits will be distributed monthly. Lucky Book Bingo! winners are eligible for addition prizes!


This month's kit has your first Book Bingo! card, reading log, and raffle tickets. It also includes some fun activities, coloring pages, and colored pencils! This month's raffle drawing is scheduled for Tuesday, June 30th.


July is craft month so this kit includes four crafts for you to complete during the month including a Summer Reading face mask! This month's raffle drawing is scheduled for Friday, July 31st.


This month's kit includes a gardening activity to help you take advantage of the beautiful summer weather! This month's raffle drawing is scheduled for Monday, August 31st.
