Kids – Recommended for grades K – 5
All you need to get started is to go online or sign up at any one of our libraries.
Beginning June 1st, track your reading online. For every five books or two and a half hours that you read, you have completed a level. Once a level is complete, visit any Library location to collect a prize.
- Level 1 – Book
- Level 2 – Sidewalk Chalk
- Level 3 – Inflatable Sports Ball
- Level 4 – Wind-up Sports Feet and an entry into the grand prize drawing
This year’s grand prizes are better than ever! Kids who reach Level 4 by June 30 are entered to win a drawing for a family four pack of passes to Coney Island! If you reach Level 4 by July 31, you will be entered to win four tickets to a Cincinnati Reds game!
After you have completed Level 4, keep reading for the chance to earn more entries into the grand prize drawing! For each additional five books or two and a half hours read, you will earn another entry.
The child who reads the most at each Library location will win a Nook Color!
Help us get Summer Reading started! Kids and their families are invited to stop by the Main Library’s Children's Learning Center or any of our branches between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 4th to decorate a Team Read pennant during our official Summer Reading Program kickoff celebration. We’ll supply everything you need to personalize your pennant.
A couple of special guests will be helping us kick off Summer Reading! Meet the Cincinnati Bearcat at the Anderson Branch and the Cincinnati Kings at the Pleasant Ridge Branch.
Then be sure to visit your local library all summer to pick up books and attend some of our fun programs!
