Summer Reading is Back!

Summer is just around the corner at Peters Township Public Library, and we are excited to bring back our All Ages Summer Reading Challenges to the community. Readers from birth to adult are invited to read with us from June 4-August 12 on Beanstack through the website or the free app. 

Pre-registration is now available through Beanstack, and you can see what fun you have in shore this summer with the library. Summer Reading o-fish-ally begins on Saturday, June 4, with our kickoff event. You can swim by the library from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm that day to enjoy music, snag a goodie bag, and have a fin-tastic time.

If you can’t make the kickoff event, readers can still pick up a goodie bag after they register and earn prizes as they read all summer. Participants who complete the challenge are entered to win end-of-summer prize baskets – these drawings are weighted, so the more you read, the better your chances are! Read on, or watch the short video, to learn more about summer reading and see how the different groups are structured.
