Join special guest readers for a story time under the trees! Rainy weather postpones Story Time to another day.

Sign up for Summer Reading!

Come to the Library anytime and complete a brief registration form. Each participant (infant through middle school) receives a reading log and a bingo sheet of activities. We have bookmarks, tattoos, and stickers, too. Kids can record anything they read or listen to however they wish: minutes, pages, chapters, books. We just want kids to read what they like and learn to love reading! Each time you visit the library, have the children bring their logs for stickers, stamps, and to put their name on the readers' board. We will have activities in the room throughout the summer, including a scavenger hunt, decoding a message in a bottle, and others. You can also register your readers to spend 15 minutes reading to a dog at the library. We will have pop up story times throughout the summer so be sure to ask about those and keep an eye on social media. There are #OceansOfPossibilities to discover this summer at the SPL!

If your child is stumped on what to read, stop in, call 883-4723 option 3, or email us (kids [at] scarboroughlibrary.org and we are more than happy to recommend some really great books. Remember, recommending books to readers, however eager or reluctant, is our job and we are very good at it!

Signing up for the summer reading program alone won't keep your child motivated to read; having a wide variety of titles to choose from will. Please ask us for some suggestions!
