June 1: Summer Reading Fun for All Ages Begins

All summer long, kids and adults can participate in this year’s summer reading program, Adventure Begins at Your Library, and middle and high schoolers can fill up their bingo card and earn prizes by completing activities. Get a preview below and sign up starting June 1!

For kids ages 2-rising 6th graders

Adventure Begins at Your Library on June 1. Sign up in person or on the online platform Beanstack, then track your reading and activities, and earn beads and prizes all summer!

Every 20 minutes you read or each picture book that is read to you earns you a star. Then, every 3 stars (1 hour of reading or 3 picture books) earns you a bead! When you’ve completed 15 stars, you’ll also get a special bonus bead.

Any kind of reading is good reading! Books do not have to come from the library. No matter their age, we encourage reading aloud to children, listening to audiobooks or podcasts, reading in any language, and choosing any type of book or magazine, including comics.
