Summer Reading Surf Club 2023

Children (birth - entering grade 6)

June 12th - August 12th

Surf’s up! Kids of all ages can hang ten fingers on a great book and catch a title wave in the Children’s Department. Students entering grades K - 6 and children ages 2 - 5 will enjoy a summer full of reading challenges and activities as part of the Summer Reading Surf Club. Little ones, ages birth to two years, are not left behind on the shore. Boogie Board Babies encourages reading, singing, clapping and bouncing with them.

The goal of the Surf Club is to develop a habit of reading EVERY day this summer for FUN! All type of books are encouraged, including e-books and audiobooks. Children may read independently or listen to books read aloud. Choose from over 50,000 books in the newly renovated Children’s Department.

Use the Surf Club Reading Calendar linked below to track your daily reading. The Reading Calendar can be printed at home from the link below or picked up in the Children’s Department. Follow the instructions in the calendar to record the days you have read and the books that you have finished. Once you completed seven days of reading, bring your booklet to the library to pick your Surf Club t-shirt (while supplies last). Earn up to six rewards through August 12th.

Visit the Library Calendar to find reading activities and programs for the whole family.

Details about the various programs are available below.
