OVERVIEW
Our Summer Reading Programs offer learners of all ages a variety of ways to stay sharp and beat “summer slide.”
For 2018, our theme is “Libraries Rock!”
Marshall library patrons of all ages can sign up to earn prizes by completing a series of challenges, including reading. There is no charge for this program. Chose either the kids/adults program OR the teen program (you can't earn prizes at both).

KIDS/ADULTS: June 11th-July27th
You can sign up for the Kids & Adults Summer Reading Program starting June 1st.
Each time you read a book or complete a challenge, you’ll earn a prize.
When you complete a group of challenges, you’ll earn an additional prize.
The first twenty finishers of all challenges of will earn Gold Wristbands from Little Amerricka!
All ages are welcome at these events. However, you can only recieve prizes from either the Kid/Adult OR the teen program, not both.


TEENS: August 2nd-Aug. 30th

1) You must have a valid library card to participate. They’re free! Bring in ID & proof of current address.
2) All books that you read, or materials you check out, must be checked out from the Marshall Library.
3) You can’t complete a challenge more than once (unless it’s listed on your Challenge Sheet more than once).
4) You must claim any earned prize before the end of your summer reading program (July 28th for kids/adults, August 27th for teens).
5) Push yourself. You should read books that are at or above your skill level.
6) If you are participating in more than one library’s summer reading program, please don’t “double dip.”
(For example, don’t read 30 minutes and then use that to get an incentive from Sun Prairie AND from us.)
