The Summer Reading Program (SRP) theme for 2022 is “Oceans of Possibilities”. We are changing our format from book bucks to a point system. Each book a child reads or someone reads to them will count as one point. New this year are the opportunities to earn points through other activities such as: read an ebook on Hoopla or OverDrive, visit a zoo, attend a Hartford Library program, participate in a library scavenger hunt, play in a park, go for a walk and collect nature items, visit a farmer’s market, go to a ball game and many other opportunities to earn points in our new program. We always stress reading as our primary purpose, but we want to include other activities as well. Everyone will earn a prize for participating in the summer reading program. There will be 10 top prizes for the children who have earned the greatest number of points. We want at least 50% of the points earned to be from reading books. A list of all activities that earn points is available when you register for the program. Registration opens for all children, tweens and teens on Tuesday, June 16th and all points must be in by Tuesday, July 26th. The opening program is Tuesday, June 21st with Lego building sea creatures from 2pm to 4pm.
