Read Beyond the Beaten Path

Children’s Summer Reading Program

Read Beyond the Beaten Path is the summer reading program for children from birth through fifth grade. Participants will receive a booklet and stickers, and will add a sticker to the booklet for each day they read, listen to, or look at a book for at least 15 minutes!

Participants can come to the library with their booklet of stickers showing their time spent reading that week to get credit! Just show your booklet to a front desk volunteer to claim your rewards.

For every 10 stickers, participants will earn a small prize!

Once earning 25 stickers, participants will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 savings account at MAPs Credit Union.

Once earning 50 stickers, participants will earn a certificate and a book, and they will be entered into the drawing a second time!

The drawing will take place on Saturday, September 10th, at 3:00 pm. The winner will be notified by telephone.
