Be part of something AMAZING this summer at your public library!

Summer Reading 2023: Find Your Voice kicks off on June 1st at all SCLS branches. Build a reading habit and earn prizes based on the number of DAYS that you read.

  • STEP 1: Track Your Reading

Track each day that you either read for 20 minutes (or more) or complete a reading-themed activity. Pick up a reading log from any SCLS branch OR participate online via the Beanstack website or app. Reading logs are also available to download and print from this post.

  • STEP 2: Earn Prizes

Complete the challenge and return to any SCLS branch by August 7th to collect your prizes. Prizes cannot be collected before June 14th---remember, you are tracking the DAYS that you read, not the number of books!

  • STEP 3: Repeat

Earn additional raffle tickets by completing another reading log or try the bonus challenge. The more days that you read this summer, the more chances to win big prizes!

  • BONUS: Attend Free Events!

Pick up a printed calendar from any SCLS branch, follow the library on Facebook, or visit the online calendar for the full schedule of events. June and July calendars are also available to download and print from this post.
