APL Summer Reading 2024: Adventure Begins at Your Library

The theme for our Summer Discovery Program this year is Adventure Begins at Your Library! 

Adventure Begins at Your Library encourages leisure reading and provides opportunities for fun, hands-on learning, enrichment, creative expression, and entertainment in an informal setting.

For all ages!

Reading Challenge

Our Summer Discovery Program has two parts: the activities/events, and the ‘Book-opoly’ reading challenge. The reading challenge starts June 1st and runs through July 31st and is for all ages, including babies & adults!

‘Book-opoly’ is a fun way to encourage leisure reading, explore new genres & authors, and attend library programs. Color in squares as you complete each activity, then turn it in at the end of the summer with at least 5 squares completed for a chance to win a $25 gift card or prize. Children & teens also earn books for registering and upon completion. (All prizes must be claimed in person.)

All reading counts: print books, e-books, audiobooks, graphic novels, magazines, etc., whether they are from the library or not. For kids who are not yet reading independently, count being read to, listening to audiobooks, or looking at picture books. (There is a seperate ‘Book-opoly’ board for ages 5 and under.)

Tips for Encouraging Reading

  • Summer reading should be fun, not a chore!
  • Let kids choose their own books to read.
  • Don’t worry about reading levels for leisure reading; reading below level increases
    fluency & builds confidence!
  • Audiobooks & graphic novels are real books!
  • Illustrated books are for everyone!
  • Read together as well as giving them time to read or look at books alone.
  • Provide quiet time & a cozy spot for reading.
