How It Works

Read, log your reading, and complete fun activities to earn points and win prizes.

Once you earn a total of 1000 points, visit your local library branch to claim your prizes. Continue the fun ALL SUMMER LONG! Keep reading and completing activities throughout the summer to continue earning points. The more points you earn, the better chance you have of winning the Grand Prize Drawing!

It’s easy! Here’s how:

CHOOSE how you want to track your reading–number of books OR number of minutes.

READ and complete activities throughout the program to accrue points.

LOG your progress in Beanstack or submit your progress to library staff.

Reading 1 book OR reading for 60 minutes = 100 points
Completing 1 activity = 10 points
Earn a total of 1000 points and get your finisher prize!

Finish by August 15th to be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing.

Why Participate?

Summer Reading Programs make a difference. The Summer Reading Program at Yolo County Library helps promote literacy for people of all ages by providing incentives to develop and sustain a lifelong reading habit. Research indicates that summer reading programs help children and teens retain and enhance their reading skills over the summer, provide a haven for community readers, and develop reading enthusiasm. Additionally, adult participation encourages parents to play a strong role in their child’s literacy development by reading aloud with their child and modeling good reading behavior.


Sponsors

Special thanks to the Yolo County Library Foundation, the Davis Sunrise Rotary Club, and the Friends of the Yolo County Libraries for their sponsorship and to Nugget Markets, Raley’s, and Target for sponsoring the weekly drawings.
