Registration for summer reading opens Wednesday, May 17.
Summer Reading 2017
People of all ages can participate in the library’s summer reading program for free. Sign up online after May 17 and simply keep track of the time you spend reading from June 1 to July 31. You can also visit the library for the kickoff party on Saturday, June 3 from 10:00 a.m. to noon to sign up, have fun, and collect your registration reward!
Different prizes are awarded based on your age group, but everyone will receive a small reward when they sign up. A larger reward will be given at 300 minutes (5 hours) of reading time, and the grand prizes will be awarded at 600 minutes (10 hours) of reading time. Participants will also get drawing chances or stickers for every summer reading program they attend.
This year, prizes include: free books, ice cream cones, donuts, kids’ meals, and passes to local attractions. Teens and adults will earn free books and other rewards, plus they will get to enter drawings for grand prizes such as Kindle Fires and Birkenstocks!
Prizes have been purchased by the Manhattan Library Foundation, the Manhattan Library Association, or donated by local businesses and organizations.
