​Build a Better World with 2017 Summer Reading

People of all ages are invited to help build a better world by joining the 2017 summer reading program at Wake County Public Libraries. “Building a Better World” is the theme for this year’s program, which runs through July 31. It will feature special events, fun activities and prizes to promote reading and encourage people to visit the library.

Children up to fifth grade who want to participate can pick up bags and reading logs at their local library. Children can earn stickers when they visit the library by:

  • Talking to librarians about a favorite book
  • Bringing in a bag to carry home more books
  • Attending a library program

Each week when they check out three or more books, they will receive a special “weekly wow.” These include paint sheets, stickers and other themed items.

Teens in sixth through tenth grades can join the summer reading program and be entered in to weekly prize drawings by:

  • Checking out three or more books
  • Attending a teen program at a regional library
  • Playing the Book Bingo Game
  • Opening a new library account
  • Participating in Teen Leadership Corps

Prizes include gift certificates to theaters, sporting events, amusement parks and more.

Adults can join the program and be entered in to weekly prize drawings by:

  • Checking out three or more books
  • Attending an adult program at a regional library
  • Playing the Book Bingo Game
  • Opening a library account
  • Making an appointment to meet a librarian

Prizes include gift certificates to restaurants, entertainment venues, salons and more.
