2016 Summer Reading Program

Kimberly-Little Chute Library has summer reading programs for ages 3 through adult, so sign up the entire family for some summer fun. Be sure to thank our program sponsors - we wouldn't have nearly as much fun without them!

Important dates:

  • May 31 - registration begins - sign up at the library 
  • June 6 - program begins
  • July 29 - program ends

About the Program

This year's theme for the summer is the same for all ages: On Your Mark, Get Set... Read!

Check our online calendar for a complete list of events for all ages. 

Each hour you read (for all ages) will help raise money for Special Olympics. Vanderloop Shoes and FOLKS are our matching donors, so we will donate more money the more you read. The goal is to have kids, teens, and adults reach 25,000 hours of reading this summer which will earn $900 for Special Olympics. We need to reach 15,000 hours to give $300 and 20,000 hours to give $600. Let's go for the gold and reach that top mark for the highest donation!

For Kids

The kids program will feature a weekly card featuring a different Olympic event. Medal in reading by reading/being read to for a minimum of two hours each week. Readers receive a prize when they complete cards 2, 4, 6, and 8, and completing an odd-numbered card earns an entry into our grand prize drawing.
 
The children's program is for kids ages 3 through entering grade 5. 
 
For Teens
 
The teen program is for kids entering grades 6 through 12.
 
 
 
For Adults
 
Participation is easy. Read two hours each week – books, audiobooks, e-books, magazines, or whatever format your like – and earn a grand prize entry slip for each week completed. Grand prizes this year include tickets to The Trout Museum of Art and Heritage Hill, passes to The Escape Room, a summer picnic set, creative coloring packs, and a variety of gift certificates. Visit the library each week to challenge yourself with the weekly trivia question for a chance to win additional prizes.
