It’s finally here – Summer Reading 2022!

Thanks very much to the Friends of the J.V. Fletcher Library for funding our programs and raffle prizes and to the KDK Foundation for funding Nancy’s summer birthday celebration and the Yo Yo Guy!


How it Works

Children who read will set weekly, individual reading goals with their parents. Reading goals will vary from child to child and perhaps from week to week. We will be using a Google Form for registration and for your weekly reading logs.

Children who are read to can also participate!

Use these links to jump to a topic:

Signing Up

Please submit one form per child and tell your friends too! You can print the form if you prefer and get it to us any way that is easiest for you.

Sign up here using this Google Form.

Pick one of these prizes on the form JUST FOR SIGNING UP! (Sorry, we are OUT of locker buddies.)

Summer Programs

All but one of our programs are outdoor events (check the Summer Programs page for details). If it rains, programs will take place in the Meeting Room. Please register for events so that we know how many are coming and so that we can send you reminder email.

All events are FREE and generously funded by the Friends of the J.V. Fletcher Library and the KDK Foundation.

Logging Your Reading

This summer we are using a Google form to record your summer reading. Fill out a reading log and submit it once a week – you can go back in and edit this entry if you read more after submitting. It is entirely up to you how much you read in a week – you set your own goals and have fun! The first week to log reading starts June 19, 2022 and link will be active on that date.

Each week, we will randomly select a name from those logs submitted – you select the raffle you want to enter on the reading log form. Also, each week we will have a featured book mark for you to collect!

Raffle Prizes

For this summer, we will have a weekly raffle with two choices each week (there will be two winners) with winners chosen from the names who submit a reading log for the week. There is a space on each reading log for you to tell us which raffle you want to enter each week. Here are some pictures of what to expect:

Where’s Pusheen?

This summer we will be hiding this soft plush Pusheen, a cat who loves blogging, snacking, and going on adventures. She will be in a different location in the CHILDREN’S ROOM each week. Find her, and each week you can enter a raffle to win.

Your name will be entered into an end of summer raffle every time you fill out a ticket so find her every week. You need to come into the children room to enter the raffle.
