Summer Reading 2018


Summer reading is a program that libraries across the country run every year to encourage daily reading for all ages. The goal of the program is to remind people of all ages and backgrounds that reading can be a fun and rewarding activity. Reading during the summer ensures that students are prepared for the next school year and have maintained or gained reading proficiency. This year’s theme for all ages is Libraries Rock! The Iredell County Public Libraries encourage reading with a variety of fun themed programs, incentives and prizes for those who participate. 

Children will earn “library coins” by signing up for summer reading, completing an activity sheet, bringing their reading log in once a week, attending a program. At the end of the summer, we will have a library store with small prizes that can be purchased with library coins only. Research shows that the best rewards for daily reading may be enhanced vocabulary, increased curiosity and empathy, and improved reading scores on standardized tests.

Teens will be entered into a weekly drawing for a prize and for a grand prize at the end of summer when they sign up for summer reading, turn in their reading log once a week, or attend a program. Library programs are always free and open for all ages and abilities. We offer a variety of programs that help teens express themselves creatively in a supportive setting with caring adults.
