Reading Programs

Reading Inspires Lifelong Learning

We want to keep adults, teens, and kids engaged in reading throughout their life. We offer several reading programs designed to encourage reading and make it fun!

Our Summer and Winter Reading Programs allow families and readers of all ages to log and read books for prizes and badges. The Summer and Winter Reading Programs are through Beanstack, which is our free online service that offers book and activity logging, recommendations and book reviews.

For kids who have yet to enter Kindergarten, our year-round program 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a great place to start.

Show us how much you love to read by participating in one of our programs!
