Summer Reading 2024

Summer Reading Sign ups begin June 15

Why Summer Reading?

Studies show that kids who read regularly during the summer break keep up OR move ahead academically. Summer Reading is about having fun and staying bright during the summer vacation. 


How does it work?

The Smyth Library Summer Reading Program is a 6 week non-competitive event open to independent readers and read-to-me readers. The reader pledges his/her own goal that challenges their reading levels with a minimum of 15 minutes a day five days each week.  At the end of each week children show their signed pledge cards to desk librarian for weekly sticker and ongoing prize.

We encourage books be from the Smyth Public Library collection or interlibrary loan program.

Complete each week and enjoy free ice cream at the concerts or choose a reading prize or the Altitude Trampoline Park free hour jump pass +$5 off ticket for any jump time.
