Kids: Birth- Grade 5
This summer we want you to read some fantastic books that will take you on journeys to new worlds, people, and experiences. If you read for 800 minutes, which averages to 100 minutes a week, you will receive a fabulous prize and earn drawing slips to enter to win one of our mystery prizes. You can get extra drawing slips by reading more minutes.
All logging will take place on Beanstack, but you can pick up a reading log at the Junior Desk to help you keep track.
Teens: Grades 6-12
Reading gives you a chance to put yourself into the place of an unlimited amount of characters. We want to reward you for your reading! If you read 5 books over the summer, you will receive a fabulous prize and earn drawing slips to enter to win one of our mystery prizes. You can get extra drawing slips by reading more books or participating in our Teen Digital Book Discussion on Goodreads. Ask a librarian how to make an account.
