Registration will remain open for new participants through June 29th.
**Please note that the Online Program is set up to require a CCPL Card Number. Parents/Adults may use their own library card number to register each child. Children are not required to have their own library card to participate. One card per family should work, but should anyone have trouble registering, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be happy to assist.**
CCPL’s 2020 line-up includes a Pre-K Program for Children ages 1-4 (Assisted by their Grown-Ups), a Children’s Program for kids ages 5-12, a Teen Program for Teens ages 13-17, and an Adult Program for Readers age 18+.
CCPL’s Summer Reading Programs are designed to encourage kids and their families to enjoy reading and public library resources during the summer break from school. These programs promote reading for pleasure, which, in turn, helps kids maintain and strengthen their reading skills while on break from school.
The new online format will allow participants to track their reading progress and earn points as they read great books, enjoy fun missions, and play cool games. Readers may also sign up for email reading recommendations, explore new reading opportunities, and share reviews. For each level completed, readers will earn a prize and be entered into their program’s grand prize drawings. Program grand prize drawings will be held on Monday, July 13th. Grand prizes include a Melissa & Doug Tabletop Puppet Theater and Puppet set in the Pre-K Program, a Kindle Fire Kids Edition in the Children’s Program, and a Kindle Fire HD in both the Teen & Adult Programs.
Participants may log books they read May 18th through July 12th. Books that can be logged in this year’s program include those checked out from the Calloway County Public Library (Print, eBook, Audio) or favorite books from their home libraries.
