logo vrc2016Summer Reading begins June 1 at the Monmouth County Library

Run, skip or walk into your local Library this summer! Summer reading clubs for all ages begin on June 1 throughout the Monmouth County Library, and run through August 13.

This year, Summer Reading Clubs will take on a sports and exercise theme:On Your Mark, Get Set, Read ! for Children; Get int he Gamek for Teens, and Exercise Your MInd for Adults. Throughout the summer at the Library, you’ll find great programs about sports, fitness, puzzles and just plain fun. 

The Summer Reading Clubs are online and on-the-go! Beginning on June 1, click on http://www.monmouthcountylib.org/sr.htm to register for Summer Reading and log your reading. On your mobile device, you can go to: http://nj.evanced.info/monmouth/sr/homepage.asp

The Summer Reading Clubs are divided into Early Learners, Children’s, Teens and Adults, and each has different reading goals:

  • Early learners - children who are not yet reading independently - can join the Read-To-Me-Clubs, and listen to 20 books
  • For school age children, the goal is to log eight hours of reading.
  • For teens, the goal is 800 pages.
  • For adults, the goal is four books.

Meet the goal and win a prize! Each participant registers online with the branch library of their choice, or a parent can create a family registration which gives them control of their children’s accounts. Prizes can be picked up at the branch where you registered.

Special kick off celebrations for Summer Reading will be held at Library branches at the end of June. Check with your local branch for time and date for special summer programs or  click on the Monmouth County Library webpage at www.monmouthcountylib.org
