Participating in a summer reading program is a great way to help students avoid the “summer slide” and keep them engaged while school is out, BUT summer reading is for everyone, regardless of age! Kids, teens, and adults are all encouraged to read, explore, and have fun with us all summer long!
Summer Reading registration kicks off on Saturday, June 15 – but you can sign up to participate at any point between June 15 and July 20. When you register you’ll receive a tote bag filled with everything you need to get started.
Track Your Reading
Use your Summer Reading log to keep track of the minutes you spend reading this summer. You can read whatever you want – they don’t even have to be library books. There are also themed weekly reading challenges to help you find something different to read. Gibsonville 2019 Reading Log
