READ! Listen! Check-in!

Program Details

DPL's Summer Reading Program will kick off Saturday, June 1, and run through the summer. Come in any time starting June 1 to pick up your Reading Log and get started! If you registered in advance online, no need to fill out a registration card in the library -- just come in to pick up your reading log!

How does it work?

  1. Read books! Read whatever books you want, in any format you want! Just read!
  2. Check-in with your script (reading log) each week to gain an entry for the Grand Prizes and weekly swag.
  3. For bonus entries, fill out a book review form and play the role of critic!

All entries must be submitted by August 31st. Participants will have the opportunity to check-in up to 10 times for their weekly entry, over the course of the summer.


Grand prizes for participating include Kindle Fires!
