Everyone can create a habit of reading this summer with a little help from the library. The Kenton County Public Library is celebrating Summer Reading Celebration (SRC) from June 1 through August 31. SRC kickoffs will take place Saturday, June 4th at each location. Please check out the library events page for more details. Reading during the summer helps prevent what’s known as the Summer Slide. Studies show that children who don’t read during the summer are more likely to struggle when they return to school. Adults can set a great example by reading in front of children. SRC allows children, teens, and adults to win cool prizes just for reading or listening to a book. Check out a list of prizes by visiting kentonlibrary.org/src.
Summer Reading Guidelines
Read or listen five out of seven days each week to be entered in the weekly prize drawing.
Children (ages 0-12):

- Get a sticker each time you turn in your weekly log. Collect them all! Five stickers in all.
New this year…
The Kenton County Public Library has set a community goal. Help us track 100,000 days of reading this summer. Everyone who helps us reach our goal will be entered to win a day pass to Silverlake the Family Place. There will be 100 winners. Children under 18 who win will be able to bring an adult.
Stop by the library or visit kentonlibrary.org/src to see the thermometer tracker.
Print logs will be available at the library public services desk starting June 1st. Please, return completed logs each week to be entered for the weekly prize drawing. Can't visit the library to pick up a print log? No worries, we've got you covered. You can participate in summer reading from the comfort of your own home using Beanstack. Track your summer reading digitally using Beantsack & earn cool badges.
Happy reading, friends!
