Well, hopefully, we are coming out on the other side of all of this chaos that has ensued these last couple of months. We are excited to kick off our summer reading program next week. We have a program for children (birth through 18) and adults. We will be holding summer reading from June 1 to July 16, 2020. You may sign up using the ReaderZone app and website. Sign up is very self explanatory on the app/website. You may also come into the library and ask for a paper tracking sheet if you need one. (There will be a paper tracking sheet in each packet given out for students.) Let us know if you need any help at all signing up and with your tracking!

Note: Normally, we ask that the books read and tracked are from the library. Due to current circumstances, we are allowing you to count any reading time that you spend – whether your reading material is from the library or not! Don’t forget our electronic resources available.
Students may earn prizes the following ways:
- You will earn a ticket for every 20 minutes you read. Record your time on Reader Zone or on your paper tracker. Turn in your minutes on Thursday each week to be entered in that week’s drawing.
- You may pick-up “Take & Make” activities each week. One activity will equal one ticket – just send us a picture of your completed activity!
- Lastly, we will have bingo sheets available. They can be picked up at the library. Complete a bingo and earn a ticket. Complete a blackout and earn two tickets!
Tickets will be entered into drawings each week for a prize. Turn in your time by Thursday to be entered for that week’s drawing. The drawings will occur on Fridays at noon. There will be prizes posted for each week and winners will be contacted to come and pick up their prizes.
You may win one weekly prize if your ticket gets picked. You may also use any MORE tickets that you earn for the drawing at the very end of the summer reading program this season.
Also, each time you come in to the library to pick out more books, you will “Spin It to Win It” for a prize! Limit of one per person per day.
We have a list of fun activities for adults for the adult program that you are welcome to pick up from the library or we can email it to you. Writing prompts, guided meditation, a craft or two…
For our teens, we will have make and take activities, as well. They will be slightly different from the children’s ones and I believe they will be enjoyable!
Lastly, for our youngest readers, the babies and preschoolers – we have a list of activities for them, as well! As your little one completes an activity, just mark it off. For each activity completed, they will earn a ticket.
I sincerely hope that you enjoy this year’s summer reading program. It is modified due to current circumstances but it will be enjoyable to see all of Meeteetse reading!
