Keep the Learning Alive this Summer at the Marin County Free Library!

Kids Reading Challenge

It's hard to believe that the school year is nearly over. You can keep the learning—and fun—alive this summer by participating in the Marin County Free Library's 2019 summer learning program. To participate in the Kids Summer Challenge, all you have to do is visit your local branch of the Marin County Free Library, pick up a summer reading folder, and start reading! This year's theme is "Tales to Trails".

From June 15 to through August 10, young readers will earn a Book Buck for each 100 minutes that they read or are read to from June through August. Book Bucks can then be redeemed for a variety of prizes; visit your local libary branch to see what prizes are available.

Participants can also donate their Book Bucks to the library's Giving Program; this year the Friends of the Library will donate a dollar to Marin County Parks for every Book Buck donated (up to $500).

The Kids Summer Challenge is for kids ages 0 to 12. Children who have graduated 5th grade and above can participate in the 2019 Teen Summer Challenge. Teens can earn scratcher tickets by checking out books, writing book reviews, and attending teen events a the library. More visits to the library mean more chances to win!

A wide variety of fun family special events is planned for this summer at library branches across Marin: check out the whole schedule here. Find out more about the summer reading program and all the fun going on at your local library branch this summer at
