Summer Reading Program
Get ready for a Summer-long celebration of the Imagination! From classic tales, to fantastical creatures, to the power of your own imagination, we are so excited to travel this Summer Reading Adventure with you! The 2020 Summer Reading Program will run from June 22nd – July 31st. Please join us for any of the following programming this summer:
Storytime, geared for Pre-K and Children's program participants: All of our Storytimes for Summer Reading will take place virtually. Make sure you listen for the code word that can be entered in the "missions" section of the READsquared app for bonus points. Virtual Storytimes for Summer Reading will be every Friday at 10:30 am. If you can't log on for the live stream, that's ok! You can watch all of our Storytimes on a later date as they will remain posted through the Summer Reading Program.
Take-and-Make Craft Kits, geared for Pre-K and Children's program participants: Every week, there will be a Take-and-Make Craft based on that week's theme that can be picked up from the Library during business hours. You can earn bonus points by uploading a photo of your completed craft in the "missions" section of the READsquared App!
BINGO, geared for Children's and Teens & Adult's program participants: Virtual BINGO will take place on our Facebook page every Tuesday at 5:15 pm. Message our Facebook page to receive a link to access your virtual BINGO card. The card can be played in your web browser, either mobile or desktop. Make sure you listen for the code word that can be entered in the "missions" section of the READsquared app for bonus points. The winner will receive additional bonus points!
Trivia, geared for Teen & Adult's program participants: Virtual Trivia will take place on our Facebook page every Thursday at 1:30 pm. Be the first to answer correctly and be entered in a drawing for Chamber Bucks. Everyone who participates will receive bonus points!

This year, we are using an app called READsquared to track all progress through the Summer Reading Program. You can download the app or go online (http://srclmt.readsquared.com/) to create an account – you can even have all family members on the same account for ease of logging if you prefer! See our Facebook page for tutorials.
There are three age levels within the program. Pre-K (ages 0-4), Children (ages 5-12), and Teens & Adults (ages 13+). Each level has unique prizes, badges, missions, and special activities!
You will progress through the program by earning points. You will earn points for every minute of reading logged in READsquared. You can earn additional points by attending Virtual Storytime on our Facebook page, creating Take-and Make crafts, playing Virtual BINGO, participating in Virtual Trivia, as well as completing missions on READsquared. These points will earn you badges, and unlock games, as well as allow you to buy raffle tickets that enter you in drawings for grand prizes! If you can reach 1,000 points by the end of the program, July 31st, you will receive an awesome Completion Certificate to show off or display in your home!
Please contact the Library at 433-1917 if you have any questions, would like help registering for READsquared, or if you would prefer a paper log to track your progress.
