Summer Reading is for adults too!
It's a great way to stay socially and emotionally engaged outside of school and work. And when kids read over the summer it helps to prevent "summer learning loss," which enables them do better in school. Also, there are prizes for participating.
Sports, exercise, and wellness. Go Team Pratt!
Kids and teens who participate in Summer Reading can earn Summer Pratt Bucks to pay off library fines. Ask at your library for details.
No. The Summer Reading Program is designed to encourage independent reading. Kids can keep track of the reading that they do at home, at the library, anywhere, and in turn, they can earn prizes.
No! Everyone ages birth and up can participate. There’s a program for kids, teens, and adults with different rules and prizes for each. We consider kids to be from birth to entering 5th grade in the fall. Teens are entering 6th through 12th grade. The adult program includes everyone else.
Stop by any Pratt location beginning June 15 to get started (or June 1 for kids). We’ll get you everything you need to keep track of your reading.
Adults can register by filling out an online entry form, but children and teens must visit a Pratt location to register.
Each of our programs works a little bit differently. For detailed information, see the instructions for each age group. Basically, you’ll keep track of your reading either in a log if you’re a kid or teen, or by filling out an entry slip if you’re an adult. Along the way, you’ll be eligible for prizes and raffles.
You do! The Summer Reading Program is driven by you. The more you read, the more opportunities you have to earn prizes. All you’ll do is check in your reading at your local library to be eligible.
Print a new log or visit your library location for a replacement. Check with your librarian about how many days of reading you've already tracked.
The program starts Wednesday, June 15 and ends Wednesday, August 10.
