Summer Reading Online 2021

Summer Reading Online June 7-August 6

Welcome to Summer Reading 2021!  This year's theme is "Tails & Tales", all about cryptids, animals whose existence has not yet been proven by science.


To Participate:

You must have a Louisville Public Library card to participate.

1) Register for your age group.

2) Read, and log your reading.

3) Complete challenges.

Each of these steps qualifies you for a drawing!  In each of the three age groups, we will draw one winner

  1. from everyone who registered
  2. from those who read and logged the most pages read
  3. from those who completed the most challenges

Should we have a tie for most reading or most challenges, a winner will be drawn from the tied entries.

There will be NO PAPER TICKETS at the Library--all tickets will be earned online. Do stop into the Library to admire the prizes, though! A full list of prize packs and all that they include is at the bottom of the page.

Louisville Library staff will be happy to help you register, log reading pages, and mark fulfilled challenges in your online account.  Just give us a call at 330-875-1696 or stop by!

Registration begins June 7.

Each week, we will have three Summer Reading Videos, plus Guest Reader videos Thursday at 10:30am. On Fridays, we'll have Story Time with Ms. Jenna at 10:30am. All videos will be on our Facebook page for 24 hours after they premier, but then will be available on our YouTube Channel through August 6th. So if you get behind or miss a Facebook video, don't worry--you can always go back and watch our Summer Reading videos on YouTube to complete your challenges and earn tickets online.

New Summer Reading grab bags of crafting materials are available at the Library each Monday for that week's videos, while supplies last. Each grab bag also includes an incentive sheet, also available at the Library, listing that week's challenges.

Register. Read. Log. Win.  It's that easy!
