The more you tell us about your reading...
the more your summer reading necklace grows...
and the more chances to win a new book!!

How to tell us your reading progress:

Online Reading Log
Anytime: Log Reading Forms
You can enter your reading progress anytime using the log reading forms. If your goal is books, use the one for tracking books read. If your goal is hours, use the one for tracking time read. However, if you prefer to chat with us about your reading face-to-face rather than just enter it online, see the options below.

In Person, Outside: Summer Reading Wednesdays
Wednesdays at 11 am - 6 pm
June 30 - August 18 (weather depending)

On Wednesdays throughout the duration of the Summer Reading Incentive Program (weather depending) we will bring the Children's Room outside for you! You are welcome to stop by anytime (no appointment necessary). The librarian will be stationed outside and ready to hear about your reading progress. Children can select their charm for their summer reading necklaces or pick up any other prizes they had earned previously. (Please note that masks are required for age 2+)
