Celebrate Summer Reading at Home and Online
Summer Reading is here, and we need you to help make it the most successful yet! The first step is to sign up so you can win prizes and challenge yourself to keep reading all summer long. Make sure you register yourself and your family today!
The joy of Summer Reading doesn’t end there, though. Reading is a shared experience. You connect with the author, you connect with the characters… why not connect with your friends, too? Share your Summer Reading progress on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites, and you may discover some faces you already know on the holds shelf beside your next book. Here’s how you can start:
- First, make sure when you register for Summer Reading, you click ‘Yes’ to the option to share your registration on Facebook. This will automatically generate a status update that you can edit and share on your wall (why not ask your friends to join you?).
- Once you’re signed up, post about the latest reads circulating in your home. Remember, it can be books, magazines, comics or even audiobooks. Be sure to tag the Library in your posts. It’s simple: on Facebook or Google+ just type @Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County in your update and our name will be highlighted in blue. On Twitter, type @cincylibrary to give us a shout-out and use #SummerReading to follow the conversation. We’d love to hear what you’re reading, and maybe we can recommend something new!
- Take photos of those prizes. Snap a quick shot on your smartphone when you pick up your Summer Reading prizes and share them on our Facebook wall. We’ve got great prizes to win for preschoolers, kids, teens, and adults. We may even highlight you or your family photo on our Facebook banner!
- Share feedback about what you read. The Summer Reading website allows you to leave reviews that (after content approval) will help your fellow Summer Readers put a book they’re sure to love on hold.
Reading alone is reflection. Reading together is a celebration. Help us celebrate another summer of reading across all of Cincinnati!
