A Summer of Reading and So Much More

June 28, 2017 // Filed under Blog

“Summer Reading” is still going strong at Bernardsville Library with featured attractions for youngsters, teens, and adults. The summer months are filled with giveaways, reading challenges, exciting day and evening programming, story times around town and at the community pool.

It’s not too late to register your children (they don’t have to be members of the library) for the Build a Better World summer reading program that entitles them to loads of fun activities throughout the summer while challenging them to meet reading goals. Of course, there will be incentives and prizes awarded on a regular basis for those children who meet their goals and an Ice Cream Social courtesy of the Friends of the Library on Monday, August 14 at 6:30 pm. Click here to find out all about the August programs for children.

Thus far this year, 299 children signed up for the Summer Reading program, and they read for approximately 1,600 hours or nearly 100,000 minutes, and earned 600 prizes! The Summer reading Club continues through August and children are encouraged to continue logging their minutes and collecting prizes through Friday, September, 1.

Teens have their own online summer reading club where they can write short reviews of books they’ve read. By doing so, they will be entered into a drawing for prizes, some of which will be gift cards from local stores.

And we never forget our adult readers! They’re invited to enter our adult summer reading contest. All they have to do is borrow at least three books or book CDs to enter their names for prizes, including the grand prize – a gift basket containing a Kindle Fire HD with Alexa. Time to get reading!
