2020 Summer Reading Program
Imagine Your Story

Summer Reading is here!

All kids & teens are welcome to join our Library’s Summer Reading Program! This is a fun way to include reading and related activities in summer family time, and helps maintain and improve reading skills over the break from school. Kids are encouraged to read by tracking their reading, attending programs, and participating in special events, and doing so allows them to earn chances to win one of many different prizes, including games, toys, books, and gift cards.

This year, our Library is using the online program Beanstack to log reading and activities. Instructions for using Beanstack are available at the circulation desk and in the Event discussion.

Readers earn 1 badge on Beanstack for every hour they read,
and every activity they attend.

1 Badge = 5 Raffle tickets

Magazines, newspapers, eBooks and audiobooks count too!
And the material can come from anywhere-
it doesn’t have to be checked out from the Library.
The last day to log reading and activities on Beanstack is July 25th. Prize winners will be announced the following week.

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments!

Amazon Wish List
Each year, over 200 kids and teen participate in our Summer Reading Program! We are fortunate to have amazing support from our community, with generous donations of items to be used as incentive prizes. This year, with the COVID-19 restrictions in place, we were asked to create this Wish List to make it easy for those who would like to purchase prices to easily do so and have them shipped directly to the library. Of course, you are welcome to donate any item you’d like, even those not on this list. Just mail us at sewickley@wlnonline.org to arrange a drop-off time.

We appreciate everyone’s support and generosity very much!

FEED & READ

   

We’ve been working behind the scenes on a new project while we’ve been closed! Introducing our “FEED & READ” box, which is full of non-perishable food items & books for all ages! Available to anyone in need of food for their body, or their mind.

Want to help? We’ll take care of the books, but we welcome donations of food! And please share this with anyone you think could benefit from this!

A big shoutout to Mike Baker at MB Wood Workings for the building labor & supplies & Jenn Miller for the sticker design!
