Summer Reading Program

Every summer the E. G. Fisher Public Library hosts a summer reading program for children, teens and adults to encourage reading and learning throughout the summer.   Participants of all ages can win prizes for reading during the summer.  Registration is open at the library or by completing our online form. The summer reading program also provides free programs for children, teens and adults. This year’s theme is "Build a Better World." Check the schedule of events for details. *Note: some programs have age suggestions and require pre-registration. Check out our Summer Reading Program Calendar.

Children Ages Birth to 12 Years Old

 

The main point of the reading program is for your children to have FUN reading and to be rewarded for it. Research has proven that reading through the summer helps to prevent learning loss. We provide activities and performances as part of the summer fun. All the programs are free of charge and open to everyone. 

How to Participate

When you come by the Library, you’ll be given a packet with everything your child needs to get started. The packet will include:

1. Your child's first book log

2. The procedures sheet

 

Important things to Remember > Choose whether your child is an independent reader or a listener when registering.

  •  If your child is an independent reader, they should count by the number of PAGES read. If they are a listener, they should count by the number of BOOKS read.
  •  Please remember to put your child’s first and last name on his or her reading log(s).
  •  Once you fill up the first reading log, come to the library for another (and so on, as your child reads more). They are also available on the library’s website.
  • Your child can come in anytime during the program to spin the wheel. You don’t have to wait until the last day of the program to spin.
  • Please bring all of your child's reading logs to the library to spin the prize wheel.
  • All reading logs must be TURNED IN BY MONDAY, JULY 17th in order to be counted for a participation certificate.
  • All children that reach the minimum benchmark (see below) will receive a certificate with prizes/coupons attached. These certificates will be available to pick up on the Finale Party, July 20 at 4:00 p.m. If you can’t make it to the finale, you can come by the library and pick up the certificates later. Certificates will only be held through August 12.
  • Prize Wheel: **Please only count material that you read for the duration of the Summer Reading Program. Material previously read should not be counted. Only those items read from June 1 through July 17.     
  • The more you read, the more you get to spin!      
  • You receive the prize on which you land – if your child doesn’t want his or her prize, he or she is welcome to trade with other children.
