Imagine Your Story
0 to 2 Years Old----

This summer you have from June 8- August 1 to complete your imaginary story! 

Mother Goose Reading Goals:

  • Readers have 8 weeks (June 8 – August 1) to read 5 minutes a day/ 5 days each week to their child. There are three reading destinations this year, one every two weeks  (50 minutes per challenge).
  • You may use board books (BB), picture books (E), Easy Readers (JE), or even the same book over and over again.
  • Digital books and audios are also allowed. Tumble Books and Overdrive are available for free at www.madisonlib.org/kids-corner/.
  • Books shared at Online Book Babies & Toddler Time also count!
  • Each Mother Goose Reading Goal has additional activities or challenges you can choose to do in place of TWO 5-minute reading sessions; each one may be used only once per challenge. For example, you may count "Watch MLD Online Book Babies/ Toddler Time- DRAGONS" only once per challenge.  Make sure you log 5 minutes of reading under the "BOOKS" tab for each additional activity completed! For the "book title" just put in the name of the challenge completed.
  • Then... come to the Madison Library District Community Room when you have completed a Mother Goose Reading Goal to receive a prize. You can collect a new prize every two weeks!

Prizes will be awarded according to this schedule:

  • June 8 -- Summer Reading 2020 BEGINS!
  • June 22 --  Reading Goal Prize 1 available
  • July 6 -- Reading Goal Prize 2 available 
  • July 20 -- Reading Goal Prize 3 available
  • July 25 -- Last day to sign up for Summer Reading 2020
  • August 1 -- Summer Reading Ends

You can read ahead of schedule, but prizes won’t be available until their release date. If you miss a week, you can collect it the next time.

For example, if you come in July 6, and haven’t received any prizes yet, you can pick up prize number 1 and 2.  If you’ve read past that point, and are ready for prize 3, you’ll have to wait until July 20 to get that next prize.

Don't worry if you miss a prize! Come to the library when you are available and collect your prize for the previous week.
Program may not be repeated! 
Only 1 set of prizes per person per summer while supplies last.
NO PRIZES will be given after Saturday, August 1, 2020.
