How the Summer Reading Program Works

 Anyone, of any age, can participate in the Summer Reading Program.
■ Everyone who registers will receive a Free book (while supplies last). 
■ Participants choose to keep track of their reading in one of two ways -  either on a traditional paper reading log, or online and earn prizes throughout the summer. 
■ The last day to turn in reading logs and get the completion prize for reading 10 hours is Monday, July 31st, 2023.
