Summer Reading Program 2017

Build A Better World Summer Reading Program : THAT'S A WRAP!

Wow!  What a GREAT summer!  More than 600 kids registered for the library's Summer 2017 "Build A Better World" Reading Program and kids read for over 8,000 minutes during the program.  Did you see any cool bead necklaces floating around Norwood last summer?  We ran a wildly successful "Read and Bead" incentive during the summer reading program to encourage kids to come to the library.  Read about it below and get ready for Summer 2018 "Libraries Rock!" Reading Program when we do it all again!


Reading Goals

Kids can set their own reading goals for the summer.  Lower interval beads can be put together and traded up for higher interval beads.  Use either the online reading log or a paper one to track the  number of minutes children are reading and get beads during your next library visit!

The Children's Room is encouraging all families to visit the library to enter our weekly raffles!  Each week, we'll raffle off tickets and other prizes the library received from local business.  Children must come into the library to enter the raffle so make us a part of your weekly summer routine! 


Read and Bead with Brag Tags

This year, our reading program will have an in-library component as well.  Every child who registers for our summer reading program will get a Brag Tag necklace or key chain to fill up with beads as they log the amount of time they read.  We hope families will come in weekly with their logs and report on how long kids have been reading.  For each time interval, children will be able to choose a specific bead to add to their necklace or key chain:

15 Minutes = Solid Color Beads
30 Minutes = Sparkly Beads
1 Hour = Shiny Beads
2 Hours = Glow-in-the-Dark Beads
4 Hours = Shape Beads
