Summer Reading Everywhere

Our Summer Reading Program is around the corner (pre-registration open now), and starts June 27th. Did you know that Summer Reading Programs have been offered by public libraries for over a century? Some of the earliest were in Cleveland and Connecticut in the 1890s. Nowadays, they are offered by thousands of local libraries and tailored for local communities. However, there are some that you can join no matter where you live! Here is a round-up of the best. Sign up today and earn prizes!

Audiobook Sync

SYNC will give away two complete audiobook downloads per week for teens 13+. Sign up to get notifications when the free audiobook downloads are available.

Barnes & Noble

Earn a free book through the Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Program for kids in grades 1-6.

  1. Read any eight books this summer and record them in your Summer Reading Journal (PDF download). Share which part of the book is your favorite, and why.
  2. Bring your completed journal to a Barnes & Noble store between July 1st and August 31st, 2020.
  3. Choose a FREE BOOK from the selection on the Reading Journal list at the store.

Chuck E. Cheese

Kids can fill out their Reading Rewards Calendar when they read every day for two weeks, and then redeem it in for 10 FREE Play Points with any food purchase at their local Chuck E. Cheese .


The Summer Read-A-Palooza is back again this year! Kids can enter their summer reading minutes online in Home Base (an account is required) to unlock digital rewards as they complete weekly reading challenges and access book excerpts, videos, and other summer-exclusive content.

Happy reading this summer!
