Challenge yourself to read all summer with our annual Summer Reading Challenge. From June 7 through August 7, we invite you to pick up some enticing books from the library, find a comfy spot to read, and earn rewards. There is a challenge for everyone—young listeners can earn prizes for up to 50 books, while older children, teens, and adults are rewarded for reading up to 20 hours.
The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Reading Challenge is an initiative designed to encourage parents to read with their children before beginning Kindergarten. This exposure to reading and early literacy helps babies, toddlers, and preschoolers develop the skills that they will need to be successful in school. Additionally, it promotes a lifelong love for books and provides a chance for you to bond with your child in a unique way.
