The YPL Summer Reading Club is FREE and loads of FUN.

It is open to children ages 3 to 12 years old.

 

Starting in July, register for YPL's summer reading program by calling  or emailing to schedule an appointment  to receive your club package full of goodies and a reading record. Then, read books, magazines, newspapers, comics, and even websites all summer long. It all counts toward filling out your summer reading log.

How the reading log works: 

  • Read for at least 49 days 
  • Read anywhere: at home, at the park, on vacation!
  • Read together!
  • Write the titles or chapters  of what you read in your reading log each week
  • Bring your reading log to the library (call ahead to schedule an appointment) before mid September to enter the draw for the grand prize and receive a completion prize!
