Summer Reading

Earn rewards for reading & trying new things!

June 1 – August 31

Summer Reading Program is an annual intitative to help everyone in our community keep up their reading skills and stay motivated to learn.  We have been supporting families like this through our Summer Reading Program for years.

This year is no exception.  We are making it easier and more fun than ever to join us, even if you’re at home.

All ages can participate!

How to Play

Read for one hour each week & complete 2 challenges

Grab a new challenge card each week at the library. Whenever you complete the challenges, turn in your card for a prize or raffle entry. If you want to participate remotely, the weekly challenge is listed below.

Try out a new activity pack each week

Activity packs will be available for kids and teens/adults every week. Check back for this week's activity and reserve one of your own for curbside pickup.

Stay connected with our outdoor experiences

We will have a fun lineup of outdoor experiences for all ages-- whether going on a picture book walk around the library to playing giant games on the south lawn to outdoor book discussions. Check out our events calendar for full details on how to participate.


Kids (12 and under) can earn a prize for every challenge card that they turn in! If you turn it in curbside or in the library, you will get your prize right away. If you submit your challenge card via our online form, you can head in to pick up your prize via curbside pickup or call to schedule a delivery to a Taylor address.

Adults (18+) & Teens (13-18) will receive one raffle entry for every challenge card they turn in. Raffles for a TCL swag bag will be conducted weekly on Monday mornings.

Our Grand Prize raffle drawing will happen on September 1.  We will be giving away a Kindle Fire to one winner in each age group (Kids, Teens, and Adults).  Participants will receive one raffle entry for every challenge card they have turned in between June 1-August 31.

Prizes and activities are available on a first come, first serve basis, while supplies last. Once given, prizes/activity packs cannot be returned or exchanged for other prizes. All prizes are limited to one per returned bookmark. All prize decisions are final.
