2019 Children's Summer Reading Club

July 1st - August 16th

If you join the Reading Club

You'll spark your whole vacation

And it really will look good

On your college application!

Dear Kids:

Are you ready for this? Everyone who reads for two and a half hours a week gets to spin the spectacular Summer Reading Prize Wheel! And if you read for 24 hours over the whole summer, you'll qualify for the grand raffle with a chance to win The Big One - a bicycle!

Optional: You can just read for fun and you'll still get one weekly reward.

Reporting Date - Come in one day a week to tell what you read and you'll get to spin the big prize wheel (with 2.5 hours or more). Or you can now report online. 

Please note: Signups begin any time after June 18th.
