Summer Reading 2019

Rather than focusing on what to read, this year’s challenge focuses on how to read. This year’s activity sheets challenge readers to try out reading in a variety of different ways, including:

  • On vacation
  • In your pajamas
  • To a friend
  • Upside down on the couch
  • While standing on one leg

Readers can pick up the coloring activity at Main Street Books.

When you finish your reading challenges you can come in for a free prize and be entered to win gift cards and other great prizes from Main Street Books. The school with the most participating kids will receive a $100 gift card for books for their library.

Our program starts on May 20 and ends on August 17th. Read well!
