Children’s Program (Birth to entering 6th Grade)

June 5—August 6

Mr. Patrick and Ms. Jennifer have so many wonderful activities planned for this year’s Summer Reading Program.

  • Sign up Begins May 22nd on our Beanstack app
  • Start Reading May 29th
  • First Prizes Awarded June 5th

“All Together Now” we can “BEE Kind” in our community. Our library summer reading program has always been about collaboration and supporting each other in our reading goals. This year we will bring that front and center.

Remember last year’s challenge to read over 10,000 days in two months as a community of kids? Remember your reward of making Mr. Patrick swim with the fishes at the end of the summer in the dunk tank?

Well, let’s see if you still have it. This year there will be 3 separate sticker boards, totaling 13,000 stickers, to fill out. Finish them, and this year you’ll unlock an End of Summer Bash for the town, with all kinds of activities and special guests on Sat morning Aug 5th from 9AM-12PM

We will also have two Reader’s Theater events this summer, loads of performers, crafts and two treasure chests for weekly prizes, awarded to you just for reading. Watch our Events Calendar Page for specific Summer Reading activities or download/print the flyer below.
