June 1– August 31

Hello, friends!

We are delighted you are joining us during Summer Reading Club 2023 beginning June 1. Summer Reading Club is a self-paced reading challenge. This year, we're bringing the community together with the theme "All Together Now" focusing on friendship and kindness. Registration is now open!

Readers of all ages will use the Beanstack platform to log minutes read (app available in the Apple App store or Google Play store), badges earned, and prizes collected along the way. Complete extra activity badges to be entered into raffle prize drawings. If you are interested in tracking with pen and paper instead of using Beanstack, talk to your librarian.

You can read on your own, with family members, in a treehouse, on the beach, listening to an audiobook, on an ereader- it doesn't matter how! Earn prizes for reading 200, 400, and 500 minutes!

The library catalog is full of books, movies, ebooks, audiobooks, and more to explore together! What are we waiting for?

Excited to attend Summer Reading Club programs? Check out our Summer Reading Club newsletter with information about fun, free programs for the whole family all across the county!
