Start summer reading with ice cream party

This year the Ridgefield Library's Adult Summer Reading theme is "build a better world". You can record your reading from home, office or on the road, using our convenient online reading log software, starting June 21st. Pre-readers can now log their shared reading experiences with a parent or caregiver and earn prizes just like the big kids!

The challenge is for a child to read 10 books or for the younger kids have 10 books read to them between the months of June and July.

Children can sign up to read at least six library books over the school holidays and collect incentives along the way.

The library encourages all eligible to register and keep track of their progress and visit the library for a jam-packed summer of special events. Ask a staff member or one of our teen Summer Reading Program volunteers to help you get started.

With the summer holidays fast approaching, there's no better time than to kick back with a good book and relax.

Past year in Grant County, more than 3,600 kids participated in the program, logging more than 24,000 hours of reading. She spent the first two weeks in the library, but she has since moved over to Main Street and will be at three different sites before the program ends on July 31.

Our grand prize drawing and ice cream social will take place on Thursday, August 17 at the library.
