Get those kids away from the TV and phones this Summer and encourage them to read. All it takes is at least 20 minutes per day to keep them growing as readers. Many of the local libraries in your area offer reading programs for kids of all ages with prizes and incentives.  

The 2022 Summer Reading Program June 1-August 1

The Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading Program is free and for all ages!

Sign up at your favorite branch location, online at www.leelibrary.readsquared.com or through the READsquared app.

While the Summer Reading Program is for everyone, we place a special emphasis on supporting young readers. Our Summer Reading Program is designed to nurture and grow a lifelong love of reading and learning. The program is divided into four age categories, Birth to 5 years, Kids, Teens, and Adults, and tailored to all types of learners with a variety of interests.

Free Book For Kids and Teens

All children and teens are able to take home a brand new book to keep, while supplies last.

Children ages 6 to 11 also receive a free activity booklet with a reading log, word searches, and more.
