2016 Summer Reading Game
June 1 to August 15

For grades 6 to 12
(including 5th-grade graduates!)

Read all summer long! You'll earn prizes galore: burgers, books, pizza, and sweet treats. Read 20 hours for a free drawstring backpack.

  • Sign up online or at the library.
  • Read just 2 hours (any book at your level) and you’ve got a free scoop of Culver's ice cream, plus a free book from the FriendShop Bookstore.
  • Keep reading for more delicious prizes!

For every 30 minutes you read, log your reading online, or pick up a reading log at the library.

Funding provided by the Library Friends. Thanks also to prize donors Culver's, Jimmy John's, Meatheads, Monical's, Panchero's, Panera, Papa Murphy's, Skateland, and the Champaign Park District.
