California Summer Reading Challenge : : Carlsbad Library
Public library summer reading programs build communities of readers and library users and help prevent summer learning loss. In 2014, over 700,000 Californians signed up for summer reading and over 1.3 million took part in summer reading activities.
The California Summer Reading Challenge provides libraries with resources to create innovative summer reading programs that keep California children, teens, and adults reading all summer long.
Help us meet our goal of #onemillionreaders in 2015!
Summer Reading Program : : Carlsbad Library
The City of Carlsbad’s Summer Reading Program for adults, teens and children begins on June 22 and runs through Aug. 7 at all Carlsbad library locations. The program is free for all ages.
The adult program focuses on readers ages 18 and up. Readers fill out review cards for every book they read or listen to and receive a ticket for a chance to win a $20 bookstore gift card.
The teen program is designed for students from seventh to 12th grade. The children’s program includes children ages three through sixth grade. Readers can pick up a reading log at any city library location to record what they are reading. Books, magazines and newspapers can be counted on the reading log. Teens and kids can take their reading logs and report to a city library as often as once a day. Each report earns a ticket for the weekly prize drawing. After seven reports, readers receive a summer reading program T-shirt. After 10 reports, readers receive complimentary passes to area museums. Prizes are distributed while supplies last. Special events for children and teens are also planned at each library location.
