The wait is over! Summer Library Program is here! And it looks a little different than in prior years. The essentials are the same, but how you achieve those essentials is more flexible.
- Sign Up, June 15 – August 15
- Read and complete activities
- Earn a free book and entries into the Teen Prize Raffle
First, SIGN UP to begin tracking your reading and activities. You have ALL THE OPTIONS this year. You can use the app Beanstack Tracker; you can use a paper reading record; you can use a pdf copy of a reading record. CHOICES. Beanstack has a reading goal set for you, but you can set your own goal for paper/pdf reading records. And, I want to emphasize this, ADAPT these goals as you need to. Challenge yourself, but don’t make it an impossible challenge.
Second, READ and complete ACTIVITIES. No matter what method you choose to track participation, the most important thing is to keep reading. Read happy books, sad books, fantasy books, comic books, historical books, biographical books, etc. etc. etc. Just remember to get your reading in this summer and keep track of how much you do.
Teens (entering grades 6-12) need to also complete 5 easy activities (e.g. go for a walk or hike), and have the option to complete BONUS activities. These bonus activities earn you extra entries into the Teen Prize Raffle. If you’re not interested in the prize raffle, feel free to skip ’em!
Third, earn PRIZES. When you’re halfway through your reading challenge, you receive entries into the Teen Prize Raffle. When you complete your reading challenge, you receive a free book. Don’t worry – even if the library is closed, we’ll get you your free book. I mean, FREE BOOK for reading whatever you want. Pretty sweet, right? Plus, you could win an awesome raffle prize (Kindle Fire, anyone?).
