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. The 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.

Extra Points:

Chapter book readers can earn points by visiting the library, reading, and filling in the Book Bingo on the back of the points log. This involves reading and completing “challenges.” A challenge station at the library’s youth desk has more info.

Readers trade points for prizes between June 25 and the start of Marshalltown schools in August. Teens may choose to participate in the points log program OR choose to participate in the Teen Quick & Simple option (see postcard flyer at the library.)
