Get in the Game - READ!
Online registration for the summer reading program begins June 1st. Teens do not need parental permission to sign up. Middle schoolers will have opportunities to pre-register for the program in May during school library visits. The teen program is open to students in 5th through 12th grades.
We challenge you to complete all nine weeks of reading! Teens are required to read 3 hours per week to complete each level. Please keep track of your minutes read on your reading log. (You can pick up a log at the library when you register, or download and print the log on legal-size paper.)
You must bring your log to the library each week to have your hours recorded. Prizes will be awarded at specific levels. When you complete week 3, you will receive an envelope full of coupons and passes, including a Pizza Hut certificate and a fine-forgiveness card. Teens who complete through week 6 will earn a book to keep and a book to donate to the library. If you complete all 9 weeks of reading, you will be entered in the grand prize drawing for a Kindle Fire HD7 tablet. Additionally, for each week's reading you complete, you will receive an entry in our weekly t-shirt drawing. Please note that you must come to the library in order to pick up your prizes. The final day to claim prizes is Saturday, August 13th.
New This Year
New for 2016, the library is partnering with local businesses to promote literacy. Become an MVP by strolling our downtown area and exploring the businesses listed above. Collect a sticker for your scorecard at each location, then bring your completed card back to the library to receive a prize. (Scorecards will be included with your Summer Reading registration packet.)
Many thanks to Argue-Ment Golf Course for donating a free round of foot golf to each child who turns in a completed scorecard.
We also offer a wide variety of events throughout the summer months. These events are free and open to the public, and you do not need to be registered in the summer reading program in order to attend. Please see our calendar page for a full listing of summer events.
