Get ready to explore the unknown and the depths of imagination because Summer Reading is back! This year's theme is Oceans of Possibilities, and no matter how readers chart their course, expect new adventures, exciting prizes, and fantastic events. 

For every five books read (audiobooks count, too!) participants will earn a prize! Participants can earn up to a maximum of eight prizes. Those who complete all eight entries will be entered into a Grand Prize drawing. 

Pick up a paper reading log by dropping by the library, or go digital with READSquared, the library's online reading log tracker. Reading logs are available to print and download at home.
