ALL AGES Summer Reading Program

August virtual program fb event covers (17)

Updated Saturday, August 8, 2020: 

We only have 1 week left in our Summer Reading Challenge – that means only 1 week left to log your reading through Reader Zone!

Saturday, August 15 is the last day to log your reading. We will need a few days to compile all of the entries and pull the names of the winners. Winners will be contacted by email with directions to pick up their prizes. We ask that basket pickups take place within the week. You can come into the library or schedule a curbside pickup. We are not able to mail prize baskets.

Remember – if you have reached 50% of your goal, YOU GET A FREE PRIZE!

Swing by the library while we are open to pick up your Halfway Prize. Readers from Birth to Grade 12 also receive a Goody Bag after their first read so come get them!


Consistent with our library’s mission to open books, doors, and minds, you are invited to become part of our new PTPL Summer Reading Program – for all ages!  

Due to the current health crisis, we are using a web-based program called Reader Zone for children and adults to track their reads this summer – no more paper logs to complete! We invite you to download the Reader Zone app for your Android or Apple device. If you prefer, you may go to the Reader Zone website from any internet-enabled device.  You will need our unique Reader Zone code gr53a to join the program.  Then start reading and track your titles!

Our Summer Reading Program starts on Monday, June 1 through to Saturday, August 15 with prizes and incentives along the way for all readers.  For readers 18 years and up, we’re setting a special goal for you – read 8 books this summer! You may read whatever you like, from novels to children’s books, e-books, and listening to audiobooks counts too!   You won’t have to worry about log sheets, and you’ll have all of your titles in one handy spot to share their book covers when others ask you, “Did you read anything good this summer?” 

Please contact Shannon Pauley, Head of Youth Services, at spauley@ptlibrary.org for more information.  This year’s program is being funded by The Peters Township Library Foundation.
