All About Our Summer Reading Programs

We are in the middle of two exciting summer reading programs here at the library!  Dozens of children come in every week to tell us all about the books they’ve read, and to share the impressive number of hours they’ve spent reading.  As part of the program, kids who have read an hour or more each week are entered in a drawing for a bike, donated by the Burlington Healthy Community Coalition:


Kids also have a chance to vote between three community organizations, one of which will receive a $100 donation at the end of the summer:


Meanwhile, our teens are reading and doing a number of online tech challenges as part of our Summer Reading Game.  Participants are geocaching, blogging book reviews,  decorating some creepy-looking cupcakes, and reading a ton of awesome books (of course)!

Do you know a kid or teen who hasn’t signed up for one of our summer reading programs?  It’s not too late!  They can still come into the library and get signed up, or drop by one of our fabulous upcoming children’s or teen events:
