The Summer Reading Program is for all ages, from birth to adult. Earn incentives and prizes for signing up, reading books, listening to books, reading aloud to others, being read to, and even attending library programs. See a librarian or library assistant for more information. Thank you to our many local sponsors who help make our reading program a success! We could not do it without their help. A complete listing of our many sponsors is on display at the library.
Incentives (prizes) are awarded at the time of sign-up, mid-points, and upon completion.
Adults and Teens complete the program after reading 8 books.
Children (Preschool: Birth to age 5) complete the program after reading or listening for 12 hours. School Age (ages 5 to 10)) complete the program after reading or listening for 18 hours.

These age groups are flexible, and patrons or parents may choose the most appropriate category to suit their reading levels.
Keep reading even after you complete the program, as patrons will continue to earn prize drawing slips for their specific age groups as they continue to complete additional reading.
