Summer Reading Program

June 3 - August 3

Summer is the perfect time to build, create and have fun with friends and family. Community Library is a great place to help your imagination take off. Our theme this summer is Adventure Begins at Your Library.

The Summer Reading Program runs June 3 - August 3. Log your hours on Beanstack. Paper logs will be available if you prefer to log your reading on paper. All ages are welcome to join and will be categorized in the program as follows:

  • Preschool (Ages 0-5)
  • Elementary School (Ages 6-11)
  • Teen (Ages 12-18)
  • Adults (Ages 19+) 

The Summer Reading Program promotes literacy and a love of lifelong learning in children and teens as well as keeping up students’ reading skills over the summer. We also encourage adults to participate so that the whole family can experience all that the library has to offer. Plus, it being summer, the program can just be good fun and provide an opportunity for family time.


Join us this summer and help us reach our goal of logging 75,000 minutes.


We asked our community partners to join us this summer to sponsor this program and they delivered! The following partners graciously donated products, gift certificates and/or money to help fund the Summer Reading Program.

Thank you, sponsors!
