Everyone can do it
Babies, toddlers, preschoolers, children, teens, adults — everyone! Parents and caretakers can register pre-readers and count the time they listen to stories read aloud.
Read however you like
Time spent listening to audiobooks or someone reading aloud counts toward your goal. So does reading comic books, magazines and ebooks.
Attend library events
To maximize your reading time, plan to attend Readapalooza, Storytimes and other special events at the library all summer. Take a look at all our special Summerfest events.
All it takes is 20 minutes a day
Make the library a routine destination this summer, or download ebooks and audiobooks online. Librarians are standing by to suggest great stories to any age group and you can access suggestions online, too.
It's easy to read 20 minutes a day. For very young children and struggling readers, that can be spread out through the day.
Use online games and track your reading to unlock cool new game levels, activities and badges.
