Summer Reading Information for Children and Adults

People of all ages (babies to adults!) are invited to participate in our 2024 Summer Reading Program at the Nortonville Public Library. During the program, we have activities most days. We offer events for all ages, including teens (going into the 6th grade or older).

HOW TO GET PRIZES: For every 60 minutes read (or being read to), or 5 activities (outdoor, educational, or library), participants get one entry into the grand prize drawing and may pick one item from the prize case.

You can also earn a brag tag for every five hours you read!

We love to see our patrons reading during the summer, but for those that can’t read yet, don’t enjoy reading, or have difficulty reading, you may log activities as well. We don’t want to pressure you to read, we want you to enjoy it! Eligible activities include scheduled library events, outdoor activities like camping, baseball games, etc, and educational activities such as a visit to a museum or aquarium. You may log up to one activity per day.

ANY READING COUNTS! Graphic novels, novels, picture books, audiobooks, e-books, chapter books, comics, magazines, they all count.

Registration is not required to attend our events and crafts; however, reading and activities will not count toward prizes until registration is complete. Minutes read or activities done from June 1 until July 26 will count.

Prizes change continuously and the case is always fully stocked. Readers can continue earning prizes during the program, simply ask for new reading/activity logs. The grand prize drawing will be held on Friday, July 26that 4pm. We have several grand prizes to choose from and readers can win more than one grand prize. All entries must be submitted by 3pm on July 26 to qualify. ALL EVENTS AND CRAFTS ARE FREE.

Questions?? Just ask!
