Summer Reading Program 2018 – Libraries Rock!

Crank up the volumes with some bookish beats as the Winfield Public Library’s Summer Reading Program invites you to ROCK & READ.   Join us for exceptional summer programs for FREE OF CHARGE and earn prizes for reading.  New this year – in addition to online registration, you can track you reading online or on your phone!  Registration is free and easy.

Summer Reading Program registration begins Saturday, May 19. We will be at the Winfield Recreation Center from 8-10 am to share program information with those signing up for Rec and Arts activities.

Prefer paper materials? We have those too. Stop by the library.

  • The Summer Reading Program is encouraged for people
    of all ages—including ADULTS!
  • Register online or at the library  and log your reading through July 20. Programs begin June 4.
  • Earn virtual badges online for all the activities you participate in this summer.
  • Youth registered in the FREE reading program are able to attend whichever classes are available for their age groups.
  • Registration does NOT commit you to classes, they are offered as a bonus to nurture curiosity and encourage routine visits to the library throughout the summer.
  • Like us on Facebook to stay up-to-date with all of our events.
