Build a Better World - Children's Summer Reading Program

Children in fifth grade and younger may earn prizes for reading and enjoying books. Summer is the perfect time for kids to read the books they want to read. Reading throughout the summer helps students maintain their reading levels.

Children may stop by either library to pick up a reading log to keep track of daily reading. Children mark the log for each day they read. After reading for 16 days, children may receive a prize and $5 in Willard Bucks, which may be applied toward fines. After an additional 16 days, children receive a different prize and $5 more in Willard Bucks. And after an additional 16 days, youngsters will receive another prize and $5 more in Willard Bucks.

Children's reading activities may include:

  • Reading to yourself
  • Reading to someone else
  • Having someone read to you
  • Listening to a story on audio
  • Using the online Tumblebooks.

Also, children who attend at least three library programs will be entered into a drawing for a family prize.
