Summer Read participants can log their reading accomplishments
to redeem rewards and for a chance to win prizes. To
participate, readers need to read or listen to a book 30 days
between June 1 and Aug. 7 and track their progress on a reading
folder, available at all Library locations and as a downloadable
PDF on the Library website, or digitally using the Beanstack
Thanks to the generosity of The Library Legacy Foundation,
readers can redeem a variety of rewards, including a Summer
Reader yard sign, a free book for kids and teens, and a Find
Your Happy mug for adults (while supplies last). Everyone who
completes the program and enters virtual tickets in the random
drawing is eligible for Summer Read grand prizes.
Summer Read is free and open to all ages and is sponsored by
Buckeye Broadband, The Blade, Friends of the Library, Directions
Credit Union, and The Library Legacy Foundation.
In addition to Summer Read, the Library is also providing free
Activities to Go kits, learning packs, reading toolkits, and
outdoor games for onsite use at Library locations. Visitors are
also invited to enjoy the Library’s various community gardens, I
Spy windows, sidewalk activity courses, and StoryWalk® at 19
Don’t forget, TARTA is free this summer with many Library stops!
