Put reading first,
with 30 minutes a week spent reading this summer:

  1. Sign up for the Summer reading program.
  2. Visit your local branch library again and again this summer. Ask your librarian for suggestions of great books to read.  Once you register you will also have access to exciting, age appropriate reading lists made available by our librarians. 
  3. Set a goal of reading 10 minutes every day. For very young children and struggling readers, that can be spread out through the day. Use the online games and track your reading to unlock cool new game levels, activities and more!
  4. Make reading fun all summer long! 


Parents: If you would like to create a Family Account, please register yourself first and then register your children under your account.
