Universe of Stories Summer Reading Program

Children's Program

Ready to join the Summit County Summer Reading Space Race?

Here's how it works:

  • Visit the library to get your official "Universe of Stories" Summer Reading Calendar, 50 stickers, a Moon Rock Booster Rocket list, and a Bookmark.
  • Every day you read, any number of minutes, place a sticker, and the minutes read, on that calendar day (after you check to see what’s happening at the library, of course!) You may only earn one sticker per day.
  • Total your minutes read at the end of each week. We’d like to know how much you’ve read!
  • When you’ve earned at least 5 stickers (for 5 days) bring your calendar with you to the library to get your “Moon Rocks Collection Bag” and redeem your stickers for “Moon Rocks”.
  • You may also earn Moon Rocks by completing items on your Moon Rock Booster Rocket List.
  • Then, trade your rocks for prizes from our Out of This World Summer Reading Prize Wall! Keep going until you’ve filled your calendar and traded in all of your moon rocks for prizes.

Teen Program

Get a Reading Log at the library or print one here. For every 200 pages that you read, you will receive one raffle ticket to enter into a drawing of your choosing. Prizes will be drawn on August 12.

Watch for other activities throughout the summer like our Star Wars Party & Cosplay on Friday, July 12 from 6-8 PM at the Kimball Junction Branch. 

June 3 - August 9 - There will be a different activity each week in the teen area. Complete the activity to earn an extra raffle ticket for that week!
