Summer Reading Program 2022 – Read Beyond the Beaten Path

It is Summer Reading Week 4 – June 27 to July 2!

When you’ve done your week’s reading (3 hours/week for adults and teens, 2.5 hours or 3-5 books for K-5th, and 5 books for Book Buddies), come to the library to turn in your reading slip! Adults and teens can choose which prize they would like to be in the drawing for. Kids K-5th can choose a book, a prize or a coupon. Book Buddies will receive a sticker for their window decoration and can choose a prize from the treasure chest.

Absolutely any type of reading counts, including audiobooks and magazines. Turn in your slips for all six weeks and be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing! There is a $100 gift card for K-5th, teens and adults, Children’s Discovery Museum passes for Book Buddies and a beautiful side table donated by Whitacre’s Furniture for adults.
