Summer Library Program ends August 14

Congratulations to the Summer Library Program participants (ages 0-18) who have completed their summer reading goals! If your family is not quite finished, no worries! You have until August 14 to complete your goal and collect your prize at the Youth Services desk. All you have to do is show a Youth Services staff member your completed paper reading record or Beanstack app. Be sure to check library hours before your visit.

Teens (students entering grades 6-12) are also eligible to win one of six cool raffle prizes, sponsored by the Friends of the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library. How do you participate in the raffle, you ask? Good question!

  • If you’re using Beanstack to track your reading, submit your raffle entries in your account there. Mark off the activity you have completed under the “Activity Challenge” tab or achieve your halfway reading Challenge Badge, then pop over to the “Ticket Drawings” tab to enter the prize raffle.
  • If you’re using a paper or pdf reading record to track your reading, submit your raffle entries through the web form here.
  • You also have the option to complete three bonus activities for more raffle entries. Find out more here.

You can do it! Finish up those reading goals, enter the teen prize raffle, and pick up your prize by August 14 before we say goodbye to another awesome Summer Library Program.

Read with us this summer!

The L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library’s annual Summer Library Program kicks off today!

Nurture your child’s interest in reading by signing them up for the Summer Library Program. Reading during the summer months helps prevent summer slide, a decline in reading ability and academic skills. Research shows that participation in summer reading programs can increase reading skills, motivation, confidence, and enjoyment. Find out how to get started below!
