This year’s events are: Online, Outdoor or Hybrid – to give everyone a chance to attend an event they are comfortable with. Masks are required at all in person events and physical distancing rules will be enforced. Zoom links will be emailed to all participants for online and hybrid events. You don’t have to attend every event to participate. Bring a friend with you or make some new ones!

We encourage everyone to read over the summer, even if you’re not a big reader. You can read comics, adventure books, romance, fantasy…any genre you’re interested in. Ask us for book recommendations and we’ll find something great for you to read!

Register! Sign up at JPL and you will receive your reading log and a game board so you can scratch off the events you attend and activities you complete to earn extra points toward prizes.

(You can also complete the program without stepping foot inside the library – Email for more information.)

Registration begins June 14 and continues until July 29. Register before July 1 to earn extra points.
