Kids Summer Reading 2019!

This year we'll be delving into space with a Universe of Stories! This free program, available to kids 12 and under, helps you keep track of your reading for the summer, and gain prizes along the way.  In addition, enjoy special kid friendly programs each week at all branches. 

Sign up for summer reading using Beanstack online, and then come to the library to pick up your summer reading packet!  Keep track of your reading online and earn badges, while still receiving prizes when you come to the library.

Each summer reading packet comes with a reading log and stickers.  Place a sticker on a circle for every 15 minutes of reading completed.  Come in to receive a prize after four hours, eight hours and twelve hours!  Once the reading log is complete after 12 hours, kids receive their summer reading t-shirt and invitation to the final party. 

We also have many special programs this year for kids at all branches.  Join us on Thursdays at 2pm at the Tillamook Library for these special events, or find another event closer to home.  In addition, Grub Club will be providing sack lunches for kids ages 1- 18 during the summer. From June 10 to August 16, sack lunches will be available in the Tillamook Library lobby between 11:15 and 11:45am. (There will be no lunches on July 4 or August 7-10.)
