2018 Summer Reading

Rowan Public Library is ready to rock the summer with a full slate of free programming that encourages reading, fosters a love of learning, and entertains. Summer Reading at RPL is for everyone, with participants organized by age bracket: children (0-10), teens (11-17), and adults (18 and up). Participants log their reading and activities, submit their records, and win prizes. 

This year, Summer Reading participants can use READsquared, an online readers advisory and reading program tool to track their reading and activities. Compatible with all mobile devices, READsquared provides quick and easy access to Summer Reading records. 

For children and teens who prefer hard copies, the traditional print reading logs will be available. Adult participants can also call 704-216-8248 to report their hours. Ready to get started? Registration for Summer Reading opens May 14.
