Imagine Your Story! Summer Reading 2020


June 15 - august 15

Kids record books they are reading or books being read to them in a printed or online log. They can also complete some fun learning activities. We believe reading is its own reward, but to add a little more motivation, kids who complete their reading folder before August 15 will receive a reward packet that includes a book, coupons, and small prizes.(Reward Prizes are not available until July 13)

Registration for Summer Reading begins June 15.  There are three ways to register. Choose the way that is best for your family.
