2015 Summer Reading Program
Children of all ages will soon be able to sign up for the Summer Reading Program. Children receive prizes, including toys, books, and more for reading or being read to during the months of June and July. Come into one of the Scott County Library locations on or after June 1st to pick up your reading log or print a reading log using the links provided below. Participants are not allowed to count their reading until June 1st.
If you have a child that is the ages of 0 to a child going into Preschool, he or she will need an Early Literacy Log. The Early Literacy Log includes a variety of activities that help prepare children for reading. These activities are intended to be done with a child and parent or adult to build or strengthen early literacy skills.
Children that will be starting Kindergarten through 6th grade this fall will need a School-Age Reading Log. This reading challenge is intended to help children maintain and strengthen reading skills throughout the summer months when they are not in school.
