The Program

  • Sign up at the library or online at home.
  • Set your own reading goals of how many minutes you will read each session and record your goal on your chart.
  • Read books from Provo City Library.  The number of books checked out helps us to monitor the success of our Summer Reading Program.
  • Read six days a week.  You may read ahead or catch up if you get behind.  You may read more than your reading goal, but you may only collect one prize.

Prizes
