Summer Reading Club 2022

This year's Summer Reading Club theme is Oceans of Possibilities!
We are thrilled to welcome families back into the library for a full range of summer reading activities between June 11 – August 13, 2022. We will not offer online logs this year. If your child is under 3, ask about our Baby Shark Club. Adults can participate by filling out reviews at the library to try to win gift cards and Longwood Garden passes.

Children ages 3-18 should register after June 11th at the UPV Library to receive a bag with reading logs and other information. Record minutes read on the reading log. For every 2 hours of reading you will earn a ticket for prize buckets and a bead for your brag necklace. (Receive your brag necklace after you've logged your first 2 hours of reading. Earn beads to add throughout the summer.) Prizes will be on display at the library. Tickets can be put in corresponding buckets by young readers who hope to win the prize at the end of the summer. Teens can enter to win straight cash!

Here is a list of special summer activities for children (held at the library unless otherwise noted):

Weekly drop-in activities include the prize machine, finding Swishy the Fishy, make & take crafts (Tuesdays 11:30-6:30), puzzle and trivia games (Thursdays 9-6:30),and free book Friday (Fridays 10-4:30).
