Summer Reading Program

Read all summer long with Schuylerville Public Library!

People of all ages are encouraged to take part in our online summer reading tracker, called READsquared from June 17 through August 20.  All kids and teens 0-17 can track their reading minutes and if 1,000 minutes are reached, they will be entered into all prize raffles!  Also, for kids 0-17, make sure to complete weekly bingo sheet challenges (July & August) for even more chances at our raffle prizes and fun treats. 

For adults, each book read will earn a raffle entry for grownup prizes, and 1,000 minutes read will also earn entries for all adult prizes. 

Find our tracker here or download the free READsquared app at the app store or google play.

Kids, ages 0-17  Turn completed Bingo sheets in at the Library for more prize raffle entries from July 5- Aug 13!
