Kids Summer Reading

How do you spell summer reading? J-O-Y! We’re getting back to basics this summer, inspiring kids to rediscover joy in reading and learning. Join us starting June 1.

Reading Colors Your World

Summer reading returns June 1

Knowing that books help us through tough times, we’re focusing on the joy of reading. Kids ages 3 through rising ninth graders can sign up. And for younger kids, check out 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten!

Like last year, you’ll sign up and track reading and challenges through Beanstack, a digital platform that’s accessible by app and web browser. Also like last year, kids earn prizes and beads for their participation.

Looking back at the summer of 2020

Great job, Oak Park readers!

We set a big community goal for the summer of 2020, and you helped us reach it! Together we read 450,000 minutes. Way to go!
