To get started, click on the Summer Reading Program link. Choose the correct program by clicking on the tabs for your age group. Sign up for your own account, or you can be added under a guardian's account. We have a program for Youth ages 6-10 or a "Read to Me" progam for the little ones ages 0-5. Teens and adults can join the fun, too. Read your books, log in the number of minutes read, and receive cool prizes!  Youth will read a total of 30 hours to complete the program and Read to Me children will need 15 hours of reading to complete the program. There are several prizes given out along the way. Every week during Summer Reading we'll have fantastic performers and tons of fun! Check our current calendar for daily events.
