Multnomah County Library’s 2022 Summer Reading Program is underway. Kids can play online using Beanstack, the easiest way to keep track of books read, or with a paper gameboard available at any neighborhood library.
The Summer Reading program includes an array of fun, free online events for children, teens and families. The program is open to kids of all ages. From families who will have babies this summer, to children learning to read and high school students entering grade 12.
Summer Reading gameboards are available in English and Spanish, with instructions to the game available in Russian, Chinese and Vietnamese. Summer Reading is free and participants can earn books, coupons and other prizes. Youth who finish the game will be entered into the grand prize drawing which includes hosted birthday parties, technology prizes or a gift card.
There are many ways to participate in Summer Reading this year other than checking out books. Youth can check out comics, digital books, games, listen to music or watch shows and documentaries.
Adults who want to share in the Summer Reading fun can participate through the Read 4 Life adult summer reading program. Gameboards for adults are available in English, Chinese and Spanish. When adults complete four or more activities and submit their gameboard, they are entered into a prize drawing. Read 4 Life is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
