Summer Reading Club Kick-Off (ages 0–12)

Sat 1 July 2023

Sign-up for the Library's Summer Reading Challenge for kids and see how much you can read over the summer!

Open to all Library members ages 0–12!

Register for the Summer Reading Club and stop by the Children and Teens Services Desk at the Library to pick up your Challenge Cards or download them online. For each day that you read 30 minutes or more, fill in one of the spaces on the card. After seven days of reading, the card will be complete. When a Challenge Card is completed, stop by the Children and Teens Services Desk to drop off your Challenge Card(s) in our raffle box and enter to win great prizes. A raffle will be held each week throughout the summer. The more challenges you complete, the more chances you have to win. For young children, being read to counts as well!

Read as much as you can between 1 July and 26 August 2023 and turn in your challenge cards at the Children’s and Teens’ Services Desk by 26 August to be entered into the grand prize drawing, and earn your certificate of participation.

Library members who are interested in participating must register for the Summer Reading Club. Registered participants may then stop by the Children and Teens Services Desk at the Library to pick up their challenge cards or download them online.


Registered participants are invited to drop by the Library to meet other readers, play games, and celebrate the beginning of the Library’s Summer Reading Challenge on Saturday 1 July.


Children between the ages 6–12 may participate in Library programs on their own, while their chaperone remains inside the Library. OR: Caregivers are encouraged to participate in this event with their children.

Important information: This event is for Library members, and advance registration is required. Caregivers are expected to familiarize themselves with the Library Policy for Children and the Rules and Code of Conduct so that we can provide a pleasant library environment for all patrons. Questions about collections and programs for children and teens can be sent to the Library’s Children and Teens Services Manager, Celeste Rhoads: celeste@americanlibraryinparis.org.
