Summer Reading 2019 Published on: May 2, 2019

Summer Reading for kids, teens, and adults is back for 2019!  This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories” so join us for some space themed fun while you log your books or minutes read.

Registration begins May 28, and runs through August 17 with the official kickoff on June 28.

To register and start logging, go to montclairpubliclibrary.beanstack.org*On or after May 28

This year’s challenge is better than ever with more chances to earn prizes.  Here’s how it works:

The more you read, the more points you accumulate.  The more points you accumulate, the more tickets you earn to be put towards prizes!

Log 1 book read: 10 points
Log 1 hour read: 1 point
Complete an Activity (for example, attending a library program): 1-15 points

The more logging you do, the more badges and points you will earn!  These points will win you prizes throughout the summer and will also earn you tickets for our grand prize drawings to be held at the end of the Summer Reading program.
