The Preschool Program
Keep track of books shared with your child. Enter the title and author of each book read together on their Reading Page in the online database. You can even give each book a short review! For every five books read, you earn a prize from the Summer Reading Treasure Chest. There are also some just-for-fun challenges.
The Kids' Reading Program
There are two different ways to keep track of your reading. Once you register and start your Online Reading Page, you are ready to go! The first option is to earn Logging Badges by entering the title and author for each book you read. The second option is to complete Activity Badges over the summer, with all the Activities related to books, libraries, or reading. And of course, you can do both!
Each time you earn a Logging Badge, you can pick a prize from our Summer Reading Prize Chest. Stop by the Library and check in with the Librarian. You may pick up three prizes per visit.
We also have a Summer Reading Raffle! Every time readers earn an Activity Badge, they get a raffle ticket, which can be put towards the summer reading raffle prizes. These prizes will be on display in the display case at the Library. At the end of the Summer Reading Program, we will draw the names of the winners.
Everyone who participated in the program can join us the last week of August for a Summer Reading Celebration!

Teens can earn points by logging reading, completing challenges, and writing reviews. Teens also earn raffle tickets to win big prizes based on the number of books read. Points can be redeemed at the end of the summer reading party. Teen-only programs will also be happening in July and August:
