​Summer Reading Rocks Libraries

Wake County Public Libraries’ 2018 Summer Reading Program kicks off June 1—and this year, it’s going to rock!

Summer is a great time to read for pleasure and discover the free programs and events offered at your local public library. Special events and fun activities will be available for all ages at all regional and community libraries.

The Read-to-Me program is offered for preschool children. The theme for programs for school-aged children, teens and adults is “Libraries Rock!”

Children (birth through Grade 5): Grab a reading log at your local library, and earn stamps when you talk to librarians about a favorite book, bring in a bag to carry home more books or attend a program. Each week when you check out three or more books, you will receive a special summer surprise. 

Teens: You’ll be entered into our program and weekly prize drawings when you check out three or more books, attend a teen program at a regional library, open a new library account or participate in Teen Leadership Corps. Prizes include gift certificates to theaters, sporting events, amusement parks and more. 

Adults: You’ll be entered into our program and weekly prize drawings when you check out three or more books, attend an adult program at a regional library, open a library account or make an appointment to meet a librarian. Prizes include gift certificates to restaurants, entertainment venues and more. 

Summer reading will begin on June 1 and run through July 31. All regional and community libraries are planning celebrations to launch into summer reading. Join us on these special days sign up for Summer Reading, stay for performances and create a Sharpie tie dye bandana craft.
