Reading Colors Your WorldSummer Reading Program

From June through August, embark on a colorful summer reading adventure through the Summer Reading Program — this year’s theme is “Reading Colors Your World!”

Unlock your summer reading adventure!

Each month, unlock a new set of summer reading activities, recommended reading, and virtual programs for all ages. Every week, find new printable coloring pages and activity sheets in the kids section. Monthly craft kits for all ages are available for pick-up at your preferred library branch while supplies last.

Register for the 2021 Virtual Summer Reading Challenge

All ages are invited to join the 2021 Summer Reading Challenge! This year, participants will track their reading accomplishments virtually using Beanstack, an online portal that tracks reading time, awards badges, and collects raffle tickets for prizes. For mobile devices, the Beanstack Tracker app is also available for free. Participants who already have a Beanstack account can use their existing login information.

All participants are eligible to receive a free book after registering. Pick up at your preferred library branch in Grants Pass, Illinois Valley, Williams, or Wolf Creek.
