Summer Reading Online

Programs for All Ages

JUNE 8 through AUGUST 1

Each year, from June through July, we host Summer Reading. Our online versions are identical to the in-person programs, and have the same goals and prizes. Many of our activities will be online this year, including crafts and activities you can do at home.

The 2020 Summer Reading Theme is “Imagine Your Story.” The possibilities are endless!

Did You Play Online Last Year?

You won’t have to re-register since the program software remembers who you are. Simply sign up for the program you want, either through the individual link below, or through the Family Management Portal!

Program may not be repeated!  Only 1 set of prizes per person per summer.
NO PRIZES 
will be given after Saturday, AUGUST 1, 2020.

Prizes

You can read ahead of schedule, but prizes won’t be available until their release date. If you miss a week, you can collect it the next time.

For example, if you come in July 6, and haven’t gotten any prizes yet, you can pick up prize number 1 and 2.  If you’ve read past that point, and are ready for prize 3, you’ll have to wait until July 20 to get that next prize.

Prizes will be available any time after their first availability date until August 1, while supplies last.

NO PRIZES AFTER AUGUST 1

Family Management Portal

An easy place to keep all your family’s reading progress together!

You can add all your children and register them for their respective programs in one place.  Each patron will have to sign up for their individual program, and logging can be done either through the Family Management Portal or through each program’s unique page.

For example, Moms can log their children’s reading for them through the Family Management Portal, or the children can log into their program’s page and log their books for themselves.

Individual Programs

If you don’t want to use the Family Management Portal, or are only participating in one program, you can sign up and log on through each program’s unique sign-up page.

If you already signed up your children through the individual pages, you can still use the Family Management Portal!  Just use the “Link Existing User” option located at the top center of the Family Management Portal page.
