This year the program is divided between June and July. The library is challenging young patrons to read 425 minutes each month. At the end of each month, children can submit their reading log in order to be entered into the grand prize raffle. Simply record your child’s minutes on the print log available at the library or use the online portal to record your minutes via the YPL website (under summer reading). Using the online portal will also allow for weekly challenges and prizes.

Grand prize will be drawn Aug. 2.
