Summer Reading Games for All Ages

Read alone, or read aloud, but Read to the Rhythm. Children up to fourth-grade graduates set their own reading goals. Kids earn a library tote bag after 100 minutes of reading. Then, when they meet their goal, they choose a prize book to take home. Signup online or at the Main Library and Douglass Branch.

Teens and adults, we invite you to read for prizes as well! Sign up, keep track of your reading, and enjoy reading this summer.
