"Read, Renew, Repeat"

May 31st - July 5th

Ages 0 - 18

2024 Summer Reading Program

How Do I Participate?

  • Registration is REQUIRED and will open on May 31st. Participants can register at any time during the SRP.

  • Participants will be sorted into teams: Flora, Fauna, and Agriculture, and will receive lanyards with their corresponding teams.

  • Teams will be competing against each other to turn in the most reading logs.

  • For children ages 0-18, read 20 minutes or more daily to earn prizes. To record your minutes, pick up a reading log at the front desk or download it from our website.

  • Attend our weekly programs to earn raffle tickets!


How do I win?

Just complete your reading log! Once turned in, you will receive another reading log and a sticker to place on your team's tracking poster. A small prize will be awarded to you for completing a reading log.

Additional raffle tickets will be handed out to children who check out and read a book about recycling, wildlife conservation, etc. (Books can be from other libraries.)

Are there any grand prizes?

Yes! For every reading log you turn in, you may enter your name and phone number into the corresponding raffle box. You may enter any raffle, but you can only win one grand prize. Please have all raffle tickets turned in by Friday, July 5th at 12pm. 

Are there other ways to win?

Yes! Bring your team lanyard (given to you at registration) to our weekly programs to earn additional raffle tickets!

Live Caterpillar Cam!

Note: When the library is closed, we put a lid on their container so they don't run away!

If you can't see any caterpillars, they may be hiding under a leaf.

If their container is gone, we may be cleaning it or showing them off to patrons.

If the stream isn't working, know that we will have it fixed soon. Thank you!
