Summer Reading Program FAQ


Who can take part in the Summer Reading Program?

Children entering grades K-6 can take part in the summer reading program by reading 10 or more books this summer.

How do I get started?

You can stop by the library starting June 15 to pick up a reading log and bookopoly game board . Spin the dice and you’re ready to play. Bring the game board with you each time you visit the library. Complete the game and win a free book! (one spin per visit and one prize per person, while supplies last.)

What should I read?

Read or listen to books that are age appropriate. Our librarians are happy to make           suggestions; if you have a school reading list, we can help you locate those books, too.

Do I have to have a Woodbridge library card?

Your library card is THE card to have this summer!  If you live in Woodbridge, you can get a library card here. If you live elsewhere in Connecticut, visit your town library first to get a card. Your freelibrary card is valid at any public library in Connecticut!

How do I fill out a reading log?

List the library books you read at home throughout the summer.

When your reading log is complete, ask a parent to initial that you have read the books.

Why should I participate?

Research has shown that children who continue to read during the summer are able to     maintain reading levels and perform better in the fall when school begins.                             Reading is the richest reward!

Turn in your reading log by August 18 to be eligible for a free book while supplies last. One book per child.
