Summer Reading Program
May 31 – July 30, 2022
Participate in the library’s FREE Summer Reading Program for fun and prizes this summer!
This year’s theme is “Oceans of Possibilities,” and a variety of storytimes and special events throughout the summer will focus on oceans, sea life, and stories about them!
The Summer Reading Program for children, teens, and adults begins May 31 and continues through July 30 at W-TCPL locations*, on the Bookmobile, and through READSquared, our online option.
*NOTE: The Warren Library is currently closed. Watch this page and the library’s social media pages to find out how you can participate in the Summer Reading Program in Warren by visiting us at the downtown Farmer’s Market.
Two Ways To Participate:
1. Online through READSquared
READSquared is an online tool that offers an easy option for children, teens, and adults who would like to virtually participate in the Summer Reading Program. Simply visit WTCPL.READSQUARED.COM to get started. It is free to create a personal account in ReadSquared to record reading activities, track progress, and even earn digital badges to celebrate summer reading. Then, just stop in at any W-TCPL library location to collect your prizes!
2. Printed Summer Reading Program forms
To participate using printed Summer Reading forms, simply stop by a W-TCPL location* or visit the Bookmobile to pick up your reading log or entry slip, start reading, and then bring your completed form back to your library location.
It is especially important for children to keep reading over the summer months so they can maintain their reading level when school resumes in the fall. The library’s Summer Reading Program can provide a fun incentive to help keep children motivated to keep reading!
Children ages 3 – 12 can participate in a Summer Reading & Learning Challenge Bingo game! Pick up a Reading & Learning Challenge BINGO form at a W-TCPL location* or, to participate online, visit WTCPL.READSQUARED.COM.
FREE Mini Beach Ball With Registration!
Each child ages 3 – 12 who registers for the Summer Reading Program will receive a free mini beach ball to keep!

Children ages 3 to 12 can earn prizes for reading at home and keeping track of their reading with a Reading & Learning Bingo sheet or the online option. Kids complete activities in five boxes in a row (Read for 20 Minutes, Read or Write a Poem, etc.) to get a BINGO.
