The Summer Reading Program for children runs from June 5 through September 2. There will be programs, prizes, hands-on creative opportunities and special events during the Children’s “Build a Better World” Summer Reading Program. Participants will record the number of minutes and the titles that they read throughout the summer.

Children who read for 1,000 minutes will earn a certificate and free book, as well as credit for their school. They will have free choice of the books, magazines, and audiobooks they wish to read or listen to. Children can also earn reading time by using TumbleBook ebooks (see link at www.rodmanlibrary.com/kids), or by attending library programs. Completing 12 challenges will earn a bonus prize.

The library will also offer special programs for adults, children and teens. Area families are invited to join the Children’s Department “Super Reader” program at the library this summer. Each month during June, July and August, library cardholders may pick up a “Super Reader” card at the Main Library Children’s Desk, Branch or Bookmobile. For each children’s item (with the exception of DVDs, videos, toys or music CDs) checked out at any Rodman Library location, participants will receive one stamp on a star. Each completed card, with 50 stamps, may be turned in to the library for a chance to win that month’s drawing of $50.00 in paperback books. You may enter multiple times. Each month starts with a new card and partial cards may not be combined. All completed cards will be eligible for a Grand Prize Drawing of $100.00 in paperback books. Stamps may only be given at time of checkout. The library is not responsible for any lost cards. Winners will be notified by phone and must claim their prize within one month’s time.


Popular monthly children’s programs will continue throughout the summer. Book F.E.A.S.T. will return for seven Thursdays from noon until 1:00 p.m., beginning June 8. Prizes and special events are sponsored by Friends of Rodman Public Library.
