The last couple of years, we’ve shared area summer reading clubs from local libraries. Here are a few for this year to consider- each is set up a little differently- some have already started!
St. Louis Public Library | May 4 – July 25. Join Every Hero Has a Story, the St. Louis Public Library’s reading club. There are two categories, for babies through elementary school, and middle through high school. The rules are simple:
• Turn in a Summer Reading Club Reading Record at any St. Louis Public Library between May 4 and July 25.
• Keep track of the library books and/or magazines you read or listen to (eBooks & audio books count too!).
• Each time you complete five books, win a small prize, and keep reading. Prizes available May 11. Age-appropriate prizes are available for babies and toddlers.
St. Charles City-County Library District | June 1 – August 1. Teens “15 hours of reading completes the program to receive a book and entry into the grand prize drawing. Read 60 more hours to receive a bonus prize and enter the drawing again! Win ca$h in the grand prize drawing!” Learn more here.
Early Readers Club and Kids Reading Club can still pick up a print log sheet at the library to help track their reading. In order to redeem prizes, participants must register and enter their reading online, which can be done at the library or from any device with internet access. Schools frequently ask for student participation numbers and taking the club online provides us with accurate statistics. Learn more here.
