Let your inner superhero shine this summer by joining our 2015 Summer Reading Program for children, Every Hero Has a Story! Being part of Camden County Library’s Summer Reading Program is a great way to include reading and related activities in summer family time. It helps children maintain and improve reading skills over the summer months. Not to mention there’s a chance to win some great prizes!
Children will start by registering for summer reading at a local library branch. (Registration and Program Dates vary by branch). Once you have registered, you'll receive a summer reading log. Keep track of every hour your child reads and/or is read to. Read anything! Read anywhere! Make sure to log your hours with your local branch to earn incentives and to be entered to win larger prizes.
Teens can get in on the Summer Reading action too! Keep track of every hour you read, make sure to check in with the library and get the chance to win some AWESOME prizes. Be sure to look at our event calendar to keep your summer filled with fun.
