Chatham Public Library’s Summer Reading Program 2020: Imagine Your Story

The Summer Reading Program is in full swing! Let your imagination soar by reading more – You can do this! The last day to record time or fill a square on the Children’s Book Bingo and Teen Book Bingo game is Wednesday, August 26th. Please put the bingo game in an envelope and return it to the outside book drop (don’t forget your name).
Pre-k through high school aged readers can register through READsquared to log minutes, earn points, and find reading suggestions. Participants will be able to log their minutes once registered, beginning July 1 thru August 26. To complete the reading program you must reach 1000 points. Each minute read equals one point. At each 100 points, readers can earn a badge and their name is added to a drawing for a grand prize at the end of the summer. Along the way, ice cream coupons donated by Dairy Queen Ghent and Stewart Shops will be added incentives.
Registration is required for all programs and begins June 22nd. Contact Becky at to sign up, schedule pickup of materials, receive Zoom links, and for more information
