Summer Reading Program

Get ready for some summer reading! Our Summer Reading Program “Tails and Tales” starts Tuesday, June 1 and will end Saturday, July 31. Beginning June 1, children, teens, and adults can sign up online via Beanstack or by visiting their local library branch to receive a physical reading log. Simply read books and track your reading to earn prizes!

The reading goals for each age group are:
Kids (0-9) = 300 pages
Teens (10-17) = 600 pages
Adults (18+) = 1,000 pages

Ebooks and Audiobooks
In addition to physical books, eBooks and audiobooks also count toward your reading goal. For young children, books read to them will also count. Check out Hoopla Digital and OverDrive for fascinating eBooks and audiobooks.
