ABOUT SUMMER READING AT FAYETTEVILLE PUBLIC LIBRARY
Any child through fourth grade who is reading independently may sign up to be a summer reader and receive a log to track reading progress. Readers may complete as many logs as they want throughout the summer to be eligible for prizes. Sign up in the Children’s Library or at the link below. Listeners may also sign up in the library or online and receive a listening log.
The Children's Summer Reading Program is sponsored by the Fayetteville Public Library Foundation.
For independent readers, how does the log work?
Readers will record time read. Each clock on the log equals one hour. When five hours (five clocks) in the log are finished, readers are eligible for an entertainment coupon for each of the first three logs. For the fourth log completed, readers will receive a prize and a book. The first 175 readers to complete log four will also receive two tickets to an Arkansas Naturals baseball game. For every log completed, readers enter their name in the drawing for end-of-summer grand prizes.
What about the log for listeners?
Listeners may enroll in the program as a listener and get a listening log at the Children’s Desk. Parents and caregivers record the title of each book read to the child in their log. For every six books, the child earns a sticker. When the log is filled, the child may choose a book as a prize. Listeners may fill up as many logs as they want throughout the summer.
Rising seventh graders can get involved at FPL as volunteers in this weekly volunteer program. Participants will assist with programs and special projects in addition to planning a children’s storytime. Sign up at the Children’s Desk by June 12. Learn more – and download the application – at the link below.
Sign up at the Children’s Desk or online. Participants will record time read. Each clock on the log equals one hour.
