Summer Reading Is Here!

A Universe of Stories

Summertime means fun time! Your East Baton Rouge Parish Library has planned a Summer Reading Program for every age group, so the whole family can participate. This summer is sure to be packed with great books, exciting programs and fabulous prizes for adults, teens and children! We’re heading into outer space to celebrate this year’s theme, A Universe of Stories, with a special focus on the 50th anniversary of the very first moon landing!

Parents / guardians can pick up registration materials for kids ages 0-11 in the Children’s Room at any Library location starting Tuesday, May 28, through Wednesday, July 31. Children who reach their reading goals by Wednesday, August 15 will receive a reading certificate, a FREE book and other cool prizes, plus have their name entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate. Each child must read a minimum of five books to complete the Summer Reading Program.

Teens going into grades 6-12 are invited to join the Teen Summer Reading Program by signing up in the Teen Section at any Library location and picking up their reading log starting Tuesday, May 28. Teens can submit their reading logs though Thursday, August 15. To complete the program, read any six regular books and you’ll receive six Library Bucks, a drawstring backpack, a stylish alien keychain, and a mini rocket launcher! Plus, if you keep reading, you’ll be entered into the weekly prize drawing. Every three regular books you read, three programs you attend, or line of Summer Reading Bingo you complete gets you an entry into the drawing for cool prizes like autographed books, virtual reality headsets and more!
