Summer Reading Program

SRP 2024

CHILDREN'S READING PROGRAM

Sign up for Summer Reading 2024 and start reading!
Every 500 minutes you read earns you a chance for a prize.
You will earn a virtual badge for every 500 minutes you read and log on Beanstack. Each badge wins you a chance in a drawing for an awesome prize.

Once you've read at least 500 minutes, send us a vertical photo of you holding a book and we'll make a poster of you that will hang in the library this summer. Email your photo to
[email protected]. Pick up your copy during library hours.

The more you read, the more chances to win!

TEEN AND ADULT READING PROGRAM

Sign up on Beanstack to be eligible for prizes. For each book you read and log, you will earn a badge. Each badge earns a virtual ticket you can enter into the drawing of your choice on Beanstack. Prizes include gift cards to restaurants, stores, and more.

The more you read, the more chances to win!
