Summer Reading Program

NOTE: For the protection of the health and safety of children and families, all of this summer’s programs will take place online.

Registration is now available via this website:

(FYI: There’s a Beanstack smartphone app available for download from Apple and Google Play stores.)

Those without internet access can submit paper reading reports through the bookdrop and Nick will register them with an offline account. Using any piece of paper, just include your name, the title and author and a short blurb for each book read.

The rules are the same as last year. For every 10 books read participants will earn a free book. They will receive an additional free book if they participate in at least 3 of the online programs or story times, and another book if they participate in 6.

Teens and Adult/Parents can also register for their own challenge. Although there will be no prizes, it will be fun to do the challenge alongside the kids.

The program begins on July 1st and ends on August 15th. All of the programs will be online via Zoom at 1pm. The schedule is as follows:

Wednesday, July 8th: Lego Time with the Librarian
