Track Your Reading Time and Earn Prizes
The Summer Reading Program runs June 1-August 30, and anyone ages 0-18 can participate.
When kids keep track of the time they spend reading, alone or with an adult or older sibling, they can earn book prizes of their choice.
To participate, stop by your neighborhood library and pick up a reading record. When you reach certain reading goals, you'll receive book prizes and be entered into drawings for great prizes like museum memberships, Red Balloon gift cards, and State Fair tickets.
Just for Teens
Earn badges by reading, responding to, and engaging with books on different topics. Collect badges for a chance to win prizes like your own custom-designed Converse shoes!
