    Summer Reading Challenge

    Why read? Summertime reading is the best way to keep

    reading skills strong while school is out.

    Your library has great materials to share, and

    friendly staff to help you discover and use it.

    Make your reading count Do you like to earn incentives? Then join the

    Summer Reading Challenge! Use our online

    program to track your reading from June 6

    to August 6. Remember, listening

    also counts as reading.

    Visit the Summer Reading table in

    the Gallery to collect prizes

    June 13 - August 6.

    But I like paper reading logs Feel free to pick up a paper log for at-home

    use. Help us keep library lines short by

    updating your online record before you come

    in to claim prizes.

    Need help? Teen volunteers in the Gallery can answer

    many questions and help you with online logs.

    Theres an FAQ (frequently asked questions)

    section on the summer reading website.

    Friendly staff members are here to help you.

    Who can participate? Everyone is welcome at RRPL. If you live in in

    Texas, you can get a free library card, too.

    In addition to the kids reading challenge for

    ages 0 - 11, your library also has a summer

    reading challenges for teens (ages 12-18) and

    adults (ages 19+).

    Please see the online library calendar to view
