Welcome to the Wilcox Public Library’s summer reading program! We’re so excited to have you with us this summer as we jump into this year’s theme:
Read Beyond the Beaten Path!
- The goal is simple: read! You can read anything, from magazines to books to cereal boxes! Read books that you check out from the library, borrow from a friend, buy from the bookstore—anywhere you get books from counts! (Please remember that checking books out from your library will help the library when the time comes to report to the state!) The library also offers a large selection of digital materials for kids, teens, and adults! Exercising those reading muscles through the summer months will help kids stay ready for school in the fall!
- The program begins July 11th and runs until August 17th, that’s 38 days of reading!
- Summer reading is for all of Jones Township, Elk County, PA residents! All ages are welcome!
- Track your progress online using READsquared. You can use their site, or download the app for your mobile device. Track multiple family members using one login!
- If you prefer to track your reading on paper, download a printable version of the challenge.
- Earn tickets for prize drawings! You will earn tickets for both reading and completing activities, which you can use to enter the prize drawings that will be held throughout the program. The more you read, the more tickets you earn!
- Complete activity challenges for extra tickets. You will find pop-up activity challenges each Monday during the program that encourage readers to create, explore, connect, and play!
