Youth Summer Reading
Who Can Participate?
Summer reading is for all ages! “Oceans of Possibilities” is the theme for the 2022 Early Reader (birth to Pre-K), Kids (rising K to 5th grade), and Teen (rising 6th to 12th grade) programs.

How Does It Work?
For Teens and Kids, take the 20 day challenge! Read for at least 20 days (in a row or not!) to earn a virtual badge and prizes.
For our Early Reader participants, complete 15 of 20 early literacy activities to complete summer reading and earn prizes.
When Does It Happen?
Online signup opens Wednesday, June 15, and the program ends on August 15, 2022. Please log your completed reading and activities by August 15. Final day to claim prizes is September 6, while supplies last.
