Summer Reading

Summer Reading is almost here – and it’s jam-packed with fun activities and giveaways throughout June and July!

Summer Reading Kickoff

Summer Reading kicks off Saturday, June 5 with registration opening at 9 am for our Cold Spring, Carrico/Fort Thomas and Newport Branches while Alexandria opens at 11 am.

Register at the library and you may go home with cool giveaways, while supplies last. Children will receive a backpack; teens will get a reusable water bottle complete with a built-in straw; and adults will score a flashlight pen.

Grab-and-go treat bags filled with snacks will also be available at noon at all branches.

Come out or tune in to the library’s YouTube channel for a variety of kick-off activities, including:

Summer Reading

SUMMER READING STARTS SATURDAY, JUNE 5!

Crawl, slither, soar or dive into the library’s Summer Reading program. With the theme Wild About Books, this year is all about animals and habitats they call home.

There’s something for everyone in the family – from dreaming up a fantasy zoo to drive-in movies featuring everyone’s favorite hedgehog Sonic to creating animal shadow puppets and learning how to keep our oceans clean.

Track your reading with the Beanstack app or a paper log for the chance to win awesome prizes big and small. Register online or at your favorite branch, where you can pick up a log.

Register on Beanstack

Do you prefer online tracking over paper logs? Beanstack is a website and app that allows you to track your reading and earn Summer Reading prizes. You can register as an individual, family or classroom. Visit our Beanstack page to create your account and learn more.

Pre-registration is open!
