What Is Kids Summer Reading?
Kids Summer Reading is a fun and easy way to motivate yourself to read lots of books over the summer!

What Do I Do?
Read books! Or have someone read to you. To finish the program you must read for at least 8 hours. Audio books count toward your goal.

How Do I Register?

Go to:  www.mtlebanonlibrary.org/kids — Kids Summer Reading
After you have signed up, come to the Children's Desk and add your name to our Kids Summer Reading paper chain.

How Do I Record the Books I Have Read?
  • Place a sticker in your reading log for each 20 minutes you read.
  • For each hour read, you can collect 1 Book Buck at the Children’s desk and spend it in our Book Buck shop in the children’s library.
  • The Book Buck Shop opens July 1 and will be open everyday during the library’s operating hours until Monday, August 7, 2017.

How Do I Finish the Program?  
To officially finish you must:
  • Read (or listen to) at least 8 hours of books
  • Record the hours you read on your reading log
  • Bring your reading log to a librarian to finish Kids Summer Reading & receive any remaining Book Bucks plus other prizes
  • You must do all this by 8 pm on Monday, August 7, 2017!

I’ll be on vacation the last week of Kids Summer Reading and I still need to finish—what should I do?
Call or email us and we can make arrangements! Just remember, these calls & emails must be made before 8 pm on August 7.

What If I Read More?
After you collect your eight Book Bucks, you can keep reading to earn raffle tickets for a prize drawing in August. You can receive 1 raffle ticket for every 1 hour of extra reading. A maximum of 8 raffle tickets may be earned.
