Our Summer Reading Program is the perfect opportunity for children to explore new worlds, expand their horizons, and foster a lifelong love of reading. Join us for a summer filled with fun, learning, and unforgettable experiences! .

To join in, pick up a Summer Reading card at your local library, request one via mail, or print one out above. Complete your card, bring it back, and you’ll receive a free prize depending on your age. Children from birth to 3 years old earn a brand-new board book! Children from 4-12 years old have the chance to complete multiple cards to win multiple toy capsules throughout the summer.

Every time you complete a card, you’re entered into the drawing for one of our weekly prize bundles.

Hooray, it’s summer! Time to relax, read what you want, and win prizes chosen for teens, by teens. Complete a Challenge Card to receive a tote bag (available while supplies last in forest green, royal blue, and purple) and be entered in weekly gift card drawings! Keep reading and finishing additional cards for even more chances to win.

Challenge your friends, family, grandkids, neighbors, and even yourself to complete this year’s card, which features ten different options to explore what SCPL has to offer. Get your card at your local branch or print out a copy here. In addition to the prize you’ll receive when you return your first card, each additional card you complete equals an additional chance to win one of our sweet, sweet weekly prizes, so keep reading for a better chance to win.

In addition to our reading challenges, we’re also offering hundreds of programs for grown-ups across the county. Whether you’re looking to join a book club, interested in adopting a furry friend, in need of a new headshot for your LinkedIn, wanting to try an Oculus headset, or hoping to learn about the secret life of Cass Elliot, your local library has programs to suit you! Pick up a copy of our Summer Reading booklet at any location to see all we’re offering this year, and we’ll see you in the shelves!
