Libraries Rock: Summer Reading Program 2018

  • Fun Activities - see the Library Events online calendar for info

  • Read. Earn Points. Get Prizes.
    A reading and literacy skills incentive program is offered each summer. All readers earn points by stamping their points log when they visit the library; earning points for the number of different stamps they collect. Sign up starts anytime May 21 or later and continues throughout the summer. The child/summer reader must be present at the library to sign up. Readers may stamp their log any day the library is open; please note the summer reading station will close 1/2 hour before the library closes.

  • For more info about our reading incentive program, please pick up an FAQ sheet at the library, or see one posted at our Facebook page.

  • Readers trade points for prizes between June 26 and the start of Marshalltown schools in August. (Teens may choose to participate in the points log program OR choose to participate in Quick & Simple Teen Summer Reading Program.)

    See the prize case in the youth dept. for the variety of prizes that points can be spent on like books, Geode rock slices, magnetic rocks, scratchbot building kit, endless bubbles, earbuds, swim passes, books, bedtime buddies, and more! You can also earn a free Blank Park Zoo Pass & Let's Bounce pass, as well as an adult/child pair of Iowa Cubs tickets to the August 5 Homerun Reader game, just by reaching certain participation levels.
