Summer Reading for Kids

Registration Information

Come to the Children’s Room between June 23 and July 25 to sign up, pick up your tracker sheet and folder.  You can also use your school’s folder to list titles and authors you read during the summer. After July 25, it will be impossible to read for the required four weeks before the end of the program.  You MUST register to qualify for the museum passes as well as the certificate and prizes at the end of the summer. We will not be able to accept reading records at the end  of the summer if we do not already have you registered and checked in as a participant.

Read independently at home.  Keep track of your time or number of pages on your tracker, whatever is required depending upon your grade level.  Each week you meet your reading goal, you will earn a museum pass of your choice.  You MUST sign up and track reading at least 4 weeks during the summer to earn a certificate!

The Woburn Public Schools summer reading program and the library’s program have the same requirements.  Whatever you read for one program, you can count for the other.

You do NOT have to be registered for the summer reading program to enjoy our programs—please join us for some exciting activities! We ask that parents respect age limits for programs, as most programs are geared for school-age children. There are recommended ages noted on the calendar, as well as on the reverse of the calendar, with program descriptions.

The End of Summer Reading Program Party will be held on August 13, from 9:30—10:30 am.  If you have finished at least 4 of the 8 weeks of the program, you will  receive a certificate, free book, and special coupons for participating in and finishing the program.
