Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program

Dive into Oceans of Possibilities with this year's Summer Reading Program! Research has shown that kids who read over the summer are more prepared to return to school in the fall, and with a program for every age, families can sign up and read together. Get points through reading, participating in programs, and entering secret codes and be eligible for prizes all summer long, including a free book for those who achieve 1000 points by the end of the program. Special thanks to The Friends of the Scottsdale Public Library for their support of this program. 

For more details and to sign-up, visit ScottsdaleLibrary.org/summer-reading
