2022 Kid’s Summer Reading Program

WHEN:  Registration starts June 20th!  

We can’t wait for the this year’s Summer Reading Program: Oceans of Possibilities!  Kids read the books they love, log their reading and win prizes!  They’ll learn about ocean life, and enjoy ocean themed programs, crafts and activities. 

WHO:  Prizes for kids and Families!

There will be drawings for grand prizes – like a whale watch or visit to the Mystic Aquarium, gift cards, ice cream, books, Reading Brag Tags, and our prize cart.  Rockland Trust Bank also has a summer reading incentive program, READING MAKES CENT$  Eligible children can earn up to $25 by participating. (Grades 1-8)

WHY:  Don’t lose those hard earned skills!

Strive to read at least 20 minutes every day – and make it fun!  It is critical for kids to keep reading during summer so they don’t fall behind.  To learn more about the importance of summer reading click here.

Be a Role Model:  Read while your kids read or keep reading to them.  Talk about what you’ve read.  Help them find books they like – we can help with that!  Make it a fun part of a daily routine they look forward to!
