This is the 2018 Summer Reading Program for kids in 1st through 6th Grades.
Kids entering First Grade in September 2018 can choose between the Reading Program and the Young Readers Program;
Kids entering Sixth Grade in September 2018 can choose between the Reading Program and the Teen Program.

Read and record your books over the summer months. This year, you may enter an optional review for each book. When you complete 5 books in your Reading Log, you will get an Award, which will allow you to pick a Prize from the Reading Chest at the Library. Prizes may be picked up Mondays through Fridays, starting July 2nd.

To get Prizes from the Summer Reading Prize Case, you will have to complete Summer Reading Challenges.  Challenges may require a longer book review, or a photo entry, or an activity. 
Each challenge undertaken must be for a different book.
Challenge Prizes can be chosen from Monday through Friday, starting July 2nd.

Book Reviews for Challenges should start with the Title and Author of the book, a  summary of the book, and an opinion on how you felt about the book--either your favorite part, or an overall impression.  Challenges of other sorts will be detailed in the information about the challenge.  Book Review expectations will be different for first graders than for fifth graders!  You must complete a challenge correctly,  and a Librarian must approve your review  to receive a prize.  Some challenges will last only a short time, others will go on all summer.  Check your Challenge Page on your log to see what Challenges are available!  Challenges are completely optional.

Once you complete a Challenge, you will be notified of your AwardChallenge Awards will be from the Display Case at the front of the Youth Services Department.  You can check your Award Page to see which prizes you have won. Come to the Library Monday through Friday to collect your prizes!  You may pick up to three prizes per visit. 

Every Challenge entered must be for a different book. Challenges should be taken from your Reading Log...your Reading Log is a list of the books you've read this summer, and the Challenges should be taking one of those books on your list and telling us more about it.

The Summer Reading Deadline will be on Sunday, August 19th.  Your Reading Log and Challenges must all be entered by Midnight.  Our Summer Reading Celebration will be Monday, August 27th.  If you participated in the Summer Reading Program, come in for ice cream and to choose a book to keep for all your hard work! 
HAPPY READING!
