To sign your child up for Summer Reading, please visit the Children's Room Desk. Preregister beginning June 19, reading logs begin with the June 26 kickoff.

Participants fill out a reading log every week - each week the goal is 15 minutes a day. Reach the goal, and bring in the log to claim your child's weekly prize! Every week your child completes also earns them a giant "LEGO" (paper) block, to help us build our "LEGO" wall in the Children's Room! 
Let's see how tall our wall can be!

Children who complete all 6 weeks will be entered into a drawing for a 
family pizza night! 

The top reader in each age group (PreK-1, Grades 2-3, Grade 4 & Grade 5) that has completed all 6 weeks will win one of the 4 grand prizes displayed in the Children's Room. Come in to see the prizes!

We will have hands-on activities every day during Summer Reading, from 11am-1pm!

We will also have a special 
Middle of Summer Celebration on 
Wednesday, July 19 from 1:00-2:00 pm - come visit our "Ice Cream Truck!"
