Let’s get our community reading and make reading a lifelong habit! Adults, teens, kids of all ages…everyone is welcome to join our Summer Reading Program. It’s simple to participate; all you must do is read for at least 20 minutes a day for 40 or more days between June 1 and July 31.

Track your progress on our reading logs (available to download below or pick up a print copy in our libraries) and bring them into the library when you finish, or send us an email at youth@wnpld.org. with a picture of your log.

To celebrate finishing your challenge, you will receive a finishing prize and the chance to choose your entry into one of our grand prize drawings.
