Summer reading means Reading for Fun –
and this year’s theme, “Imagine Your Story” is all about myths, legends and fairy tales – SO much fun!
This year more than ever we want to provide readers with a great summer reading adventure. Though we’ve had to re-imagine how the program will work, you will still find familiar reading challenges, activities and incentives to keep all ages (baby to adult) happily reading and learning all summer long!
Re-imagined Summer Reading…
Reading Challenges are Online!
This year, you and your family will be able to to sign up and log your summer reading progress online with a program called . Click here to find out more about it.
As in past years, we’ve created four age-appropriate challenges for summer readers in South Berwick : Emerging Readers (age 0 to 4), Youth (age 5 to 12), Teens (age 13 to 18) and Adults.
Beanstack issues Badges throughout the challenge. Badges are like little virtual fist-bumps to celebrate your progress. They also help you keep track of the real prizes you’ll be earning.
Prizes will be redeemed at the end of Summer Reading. We’re still working out the safest way to do this, but worry not! You will receive all that you earn!
If you’d rather use paper logs, you still can. Either download and print them from home here:
Activity Packets for Ages 0 to Teen
Since we aren’t able to gather for events in the library, each of the first six weeks of the program we’ll be releasing a new theme-based Activity Packet for each age group. Just tell the librarian what age you need and they can tuck one in with your books!
Take and Make Maker Kits
A new Maker Kit will be available to pick up and make at home every other week of the first six weeks for Youths and Teens (Crafts for Toddlers are included in the activity packets, there are not separate Maker Kits for them). Again, just request one at the library!
