Summer Reading Club

SRC 2016 Sponsors

Sign-ups for Summer Reading Club 2016 have officially ended, but we are already looking forward to having you and your kids join us next year for SRC 2017! This year we were absolutely amazed to have a whopping 1,922 kids participate in the program - easily making Summer Reading Club 2016 the biggest one ever! We'd like to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped make it such a huge success. Here's to the parents, guardians, kids, sponsors, donators, performers, librarians, and volunteers who banded together to make a difference in the lives of nearly 2,000 children this summer!

What is Summer Reading Club?


Summer Reading Club is all about reading and having fun! It is a FREE program for children 0-18 years old. Beginning the second week in June and ending the last week in July, it packs a whole lot of fun into your summer! It starts with the Kick-Off Party on the Plaza, where we will have fun foam, music with a DJ, popcorn and ice cream, sidewalk chalk, and lots more. All summer long, there are fun things for you to do – Minecraft, Super Smash Brothers Tournaments, dramatic Story Times, live entertainers/performers, free Movie Days with popcorn, Makerspace Days, LEGOs @ The Library builds, and more! Plus, for every 15 minutes you read during the summer and keep track of it on your Reading Log, you get to pick a prize! Just bring your Reading Log each week to the Library to claim your prize, which are fun toys or a coupon for free food at a local restaurant. At the end of July, we will have a big party at the Broughton Splash Pad to celebrate all you have accomplished! To join the Summer Reading Club, all you have to do is come to the Children’s Department at the Longview Public Library and sign up! It takes only seconds to do, and you don't even have to have a Library Card. Sign-up begins Sunday, May 1st and goes all the way until the last week in July.
