Read for Fun & Prizes! Sign-Ups for Kids, Teens & Adults Start June 1. Program runs from June 17 to Aug. 12.
     Sign up for this year's Summer Reading Challenge beginning June 1 for the chance to win valuable prizes.
     We have three categories -- children (grades K-5), teens (grades 6-12) and adults -- each with rules specific to that age group. However, all successful participants are eligible for raffle prizes and, in some instances, a free paperback book.
     This year's theme is "Find Your Voice."

     It's easy to join. Participants in every age group can sign up online, though some categories give you the option of signing up on paper (see below).
