How do I register my kids for the Summer Reading Program?
Beginning Monday June 11th, 2018 you can sign up children from birth - grade 5 at any of the Lenawee District Library branches (one branch only). Upon registration, children will receive a reading log to keep track of minutes read. Click HERE to download a printable copy of the kids reading log (must be registered at a library for log to be valid).

What does the log do?
Using the reading log, kids record every fifteen minutes spent reading / being read to. For each "prize mark" hit on the reading log, a prize will be given when turned in at the registered branch (2 hours, 4 hours, 8 hours and 12 hours). Prizes must be redeemed by Saturday August 11th.

What if my child reads more than 12 hours?
Reading more than 12 hours earns particpants a chance to earn a grand prize!  For hours 12-17, kids can fill out an entry form for our "12+ Hour Drawing". Kids can also earn ADDITIONAL entries into the 12-Hour drawing by completing (at any time throughout the summer) challenge cards (these are separate from the reading log).  All entries must be in by Saturday August 11th.
 

Does the library offer any programs for children and families during SRP?
There are a number of programs taking place throughout the summer, including WOW! Wednesdays and family storytimes.

What about children pre-k and younger?
We offer a reading program geared toward kids ages birth - kindergarten! Kids registered for the pre-reader program will receive an activity log that teaches important early literacy skills. Complete each activity with your child and once each side of the log is full, turn it in to receive prizes! There will be a grand prize drawing at the end of the summer. Click HERE to download a printable copy of the pre-reader log. Prizes must be redeemed by Saturday August 11th.
