Douglas County Libraries’ 2022 Summer Reading Program is Unlock the Magic! The annual reading program is for all ages. Kids, teens and adults can register online for the program starting now. The program runs officially from June 4 through July 31. Cool prizes including free books, totes, and coupons to local businesses are awarded at sign-up, mid-way and when you finish.
DCL suggests 900 minutes of reading as a worthy goal, but if this challenge is not right for you or your family, feel free to create your own challenge!
You can increase or decrease the number of minutes or set a goal for the number of books or pages you want to read — shoot for 500 minutes, read one chapter per week or try for 20 pages a day. It’s up to you.
Visit any DCL location to pick up your Summer Reading sign-up prizes starting June 4 while supplies last. Summer Reading sign-up gift coupons and vouchers are courtesy of Pirates Cove, Smoothie King and Park Meadows.
Celebrate being halfway to your goal! Stop by the library for a bubble tube, magic cards and tricks or those over 13 can get coupons from Rocket Fizz or a coupon for a free book from any of the DCL Second Chapter Bookstores.
Collect a prize when you complete your challenge, or just for having a magical summer! Kids ages 0 to 12 can earn a free book. Teens can get a canvas pouch. Finishing prizes are available through August 7.
