Summer Reading begins June 1!

It’s Summer Reading Y’all!
June 1 to July 31

To help keep everyone safe, our Summer Reading program is now entirely digital! You can participate from the comfort of your own home on your favorite device. We have reading programs for all ages: Preschool (birth to age 4), Youth (K-12th grade) and Adult. The link to the online reading program will be on our home page at beginning June 1. Complete details and prize lists will be available in the online reading program.

We will not be distributing paper reading logs this year, but the Preschool and Youth reading logs will be available on our website to download and print for your own use. Prizes can be picked up at any BCPL location beginning August 1 or earlier, depending on when we can reopen our buildings. All prizes must be picked up by August 31.

Boone County Summer Reading is a collaboration between Boone County Public Library, Boone County Schools and Boone County Parks Department. We have found that by combining our resources and creating a shared vision, we can better serve the literacy needs of our community and more effectively implement the Summer Reading program.
