Kids from birth through age 18 keep track of the time spent reading or listening to books. Track your time with your reading log, then come to the library. Earn prizes after reading six and twelve hours.
HOW DO I JOIN THE SUMMER READING CLUB?
Just start reading and tracking. Download the log, use the one in our "Check it Out" or come to any of our locations in Delaware, Powell, Orange or Ostrander or our Bookmobile stops. Prizes will be available between June 1 and July 28.
WHAT BOOKS SHOULD I READ?
You can read anything you want. If you want suggestions, we have lists of “great books” divided by age level (from babies to teens) and adult book discussion titles that we recommend. We also have lists of beginning readers and several topical lists.
WHAT IF MY CHILD CAN'T READ YET?
Parents, guardians, caregivers and older siblings can read to children. We also have many excellent books on CD and downloadable audiobooks that children can listen to.
WHAT AGE LEVELS ARE INCLUDED?
Children from birth through high school seniors can participate. Adults are encouraged to participate in the summer reading challenge, find a monthly adult book discussion or attend other adult programs. Pick up a bookmark or download one below.
Registration is only needed for a few programs and it will be specified in the program description. If you want more information about any of the programs, please check our online events calendar or call and ask to speak to a Children’s Librarian.
WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?
Readers will get a special prize once they've read 6 hours and 12 hours. At 12 hours, all participants will receive a free book, donated by the Friends of the Delaware County District Library. Kids who want to continue reading beyond 12 hours can pick up a BINGO card and fill it out to be entered to win an out-of-this-world t-shirt!
Adults are encouraged to participate in our summer reading challenge, as well. By attending programs and reading throughout the summer, you'll fill out a bookmark, which can be entered for prizes. Stop by your local branch or check out the calendar and the book discussions to get involved.
