Summer Reading ~ Read it Forward

Summer Reading: Read it Forward Banner
June 1, 2018 to July 31, 2018
Read this summer and earn points to supply local kids with books.

In the Read it Forward Summer Reading Program you can earn points by reading, attending library events, writing book reviews in Beanstack, or collecting secret codes from local businesses in the Hot Spot Scavenger Hunt. Earn a badge each time you reach a new point level and earn Read it Forward rewards, which include two free books or two gift cards to the bookstore. This year, many of the rewards will be in the form of giving books to our Little Free Library branches that will supply local kids who need access to more books.We have a community goal of reaching 1 million points by July 31, 2018.  The more you read, the more you can help those in need!
