Summer Reading Club

Summer Reading Program

..READ FOR THE WIN!  

Summer is for Reading and Fun.

This year's
 theme is "Read for the Win!" so our library programs will include lots of sports stories and games, as well as magic, juggling, dancing, singing, and arts and crafts activities.  Check the library calendar for special programs!

Children, teens, and adults!



All are welcome to join this free program by tracking their reading and related activities from June 1 to August 13. You can pick up a reading log at any library branch throughout the summer.


This year we’re making a few changes
.



  • Adults are encouraged to join in.
  • Participants (except for the youngest listeners) will track their reading by the amount of time spent rather than by number of books read.
  • Participants are asked to tell stories, teach a song to a friend, or complete similar activities in addition to reading.
  • There's a community goal. Together, can Humboldt County's Summer Reading Program read 20,000 books?

Pick the reading log for your age category:


Wee Readers, for children ages 0-5
- Read or hear 20 books to win

Kids, ages 5 to about 12
- Read 10 hours to win

Teens, ages 13 or so and up
- Read 15 hours to win

Adults, ages 18 or so and up
- Read 15 hours to win

Count all the books you read if you're inspired to
READ FOR THE WIN!

Although most participants complete their reading logs by tracking time, please count or estimate how many books each person read.

Our joint goal is for Summer Reading participants in Humboldt County to read 20,000 books together.

Can we do it? Only with your help!

Turn in your reading logs and tell us how many books you read. We’ll let you know how many books we all read together.

Prizes - for Wee Readers, Kids and Teens



Winners receive a simple prize, which may be a coupon for a personal pizza from Round Table Pizza or a sandwich from McDonald’s.  One prize of this kind is available per reader.
