What's the Kids' Summer Reading Club About?

Reading clubs are an excellent way to promote reading while not in school. All youth, up to Grade 5, are welcome to participate in all activities. Join us for our lineup of activities aimed at showing youth the wonderful things their library has to offer.
How Do I Join?

Starting June 5, all locations will offer reading club materials. Simply stop by the circulation desk to receive your packet, or pick them up by attending children's activities. Information will be available throughout the length of the reading club.
End of Summer Party for Reading Club Completion

Instead of offering weekly prizes, we're throwing an End of Summer Party at Nelson Park on Saturday, August 5 from 10AM to 1PM, open to every child who completes the summer reading club challenge. There will be crafts, games, face painting, access to the playground & splash pad, and more.  To complete the challenge, read 10 books and attend four (4) programs, and if you do, you'll also receive a FREE ticket to the Abilene Zoo. Please Note: The ticket will be for a child's entrance into the zoo, with the purchase of an adult ticket.  Once you've turned in your logs, tickets and information on the End of Summer Party may be picked up between July 25 - Aug. 5.
