This page is for the children & teen's Summer Reading program. For information on Summer Reading for adults, click here.

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 Space: A Universe of Stories. The Iredell County Public Libraries encourage reading with a variety of fun themed programs, incentives and prizes for those who participate. 

Children can earn “library coins” in the following ways:

  • Attending Kickoff (double coins) 
  • Weekly reading log 
  • Weekly activity sheet 
  • One checkout receipt per week 
  • Attending a library program 
  • Referring a friend who signs up for Summer Reading 
  • Attending Finale (double coins) 
  • Registering for Summer Reading 

 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 can earn entries into weekly drawings for a prizes. and for a grand prize at the end of summer in the following ways:

  • Registering for Summer Reading
  • Attending Kickoff (double tickets)
