One Stop Summer Reading Spot

Tails and Tales

Summer Reading is here and we've got a program for everyone: children, teens and adults!

All of our summer reading programs begin on June 21st and end on August 13th. Registration begins NOW!

This year, our program has gone virtual with a site called Beanstack. You can sign up online to use Beanstalk or download the app. It's free! Click on each program below for more information.

  • Children's Summer Reading Program for kids from birth to entering 5th grade (ages 0 to 11). Earn raffle tickets for reading every day (whether it is 5 minutes or 500 minutes!) and for doing fun weekly tasks. There are 51 raffle prizes up for grabs this year!
  • Teen Summer Challenge for students entering grades 6 to 12 (ages 12 to 18). Earn raffle tickets for awesome prizes by reading or attending teen programs.
  • Adult Summer Reading for ages 18 and up: log in every day that you read (no matter how long) and earn raffle tickets to win fabulous donut and ice cream prizes! There will be a winner every day for a $10 gift certificate to Donna's Donuts as well as $50 gift cards to our local ice cream shops.
