For children birth through entering 5th grade: Registration begins at our Summer Reading Kickoff Party on June 1 at 6:30 pm (registration required - please see June 1 event listing) and is ongoing throughout the summer. Children earn tickets and tokens for time spent reading: tickets for chances to win end-of-summer reading prizes, and tokens they can enter into charity boxes of their choosing to help "give back" to those in need. We conclude our program with our end-of-summer BBQ on August 24 at 6:30 pm (registration required - please see August 24 event listing). 

For teens: Calling all teens in grades 6-12 to register for teen summer reading! Every 50 pages read earns you a raffle ticket for more chances to win awesome gift cards and YA books!  

For adults: For every book read, simply fill out a reading slip and drop it in our raffle basket. There will be a weekly drawing throughout the summer!

Please register for summer reading in person at the library.  We look forward to seeing you!
