July to Mid-August, Kids Summer Reading Program is Happening Now!

Wednesday, July 8, 2020

Sign up for Summer Reading online, or call your branch library to ask for a paper reading log at curbside pickup. When school lets out for the summer, the Humboldt County Library begins its Summer Reading Program. It’s free and all children and teens are welcome to take part. Children who join in stretch their minds and keep up their reading skills over the summer while having lots of free, genuine fun - exploring the joy of reading books new to them, doing crafts, hearing stories and songs, and learning all the time.

A bright, fun, exciting book lies open in front of you!

Here's How it Works

Use the paper reading log or the online log on the library's website to record the books you read and, if you like, the other kinds of literacy activities you're enjoying - all kinds of talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing together.

When your paper reading log is full, turn it in at any library book-drop.

Be sure to include your phone number on the reading log if you are interested in summer prizes!  There's a County-wide prize drawing in August, and some branches are giving out prizes even earlier.

Pick up library books to read and a children's activity kit during curbside pickup hours.
