Take the Summer Reading Challenge

ANYONE – FROM BABIES TO GROWN-UPS – CAN PLAY! JUST READ OR BE READ TO!

  • Sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge HERE.
  • Starting June 13, kids and teens can stop by any NOLS branch to pick up a free book. Adults can stop by their branch for a coupon good for one free book from their local Friends of the Library group.
  • Set a reading goal! Decide how long you’d like to read each day.
  • Keep track of each day you read, listen, or are read to, using the online tracker in Beanstack. You can also pick up a reading log at the library, if you like to track on paper, too.
  • Read, listen, or be read to for 30 days to earn a special Summer Reading Challenge T-shirt with a custom design by local artist Melissa Klein and be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing!
  • Read, listen, or be read to for 60 days to receive a second entry into the Grand Prize Drawing.

  • All reading must be completed and tracked by Saturday, September 3.

The Summer Reading Lists are full of book titles to keep children engaged in reading throughout the summer. Each list is available here to download for free. Titles on the 2022 Summer Reading Lists were compiled and annotated by members of ALSC’s Quicklists Consulting Committee.
