Registration begins June 1, 2018, for the Libraries Rock! Summer Reading Program at Milton Public Library. There’s something for all ages! Our goal is to encourage reading, and to combat education gains lost during summer break from school. Register, read, attend programs, and have fun!
Rubber Ducky Readers for Little Ones, Up to Age 3
Adults and their children up to age 3 complete activities that build early literacy skills. You receive your first activity sheet when you register; there’s a sheet for each month June through August.
Turn in the completed sheet at the end of the month, and the child receives a free book, courtesy of the Milton Promise Community grant.
Libraries Rock! Summer Reading for Kids, Ages 2 – 12
Children ages 2 – 12 can read on their own, listen to a book on CD, read aloud to others, or have someone read to them. You receive a reading log and a bookmark when you register. If you register online, make sure you ask for your log and bookmark the next time you’re in the library. You may also register in the library with our staff at the circulation desk.
Kids earn a sticker for each book read and recorded on the reading log. Everyone who registers and reads receives a certificate and a free book beginning August 8 (at our program) through August 31.
Summer Reading for Young Adults, Ages 12 – 17
When you register and then each time you read a book, volunteer at the library, or attend a library program, you may enter your name into a drawing to win one of two $50 VISA gift cards. The drawing will be held Friday, Aug. 31. In addition, at each Teen Night Program you attend your name is entered into a drawing for a $5 ice cream gift certificate.
