SUMMER FUN

Celebrate SUMMER FUN at the New Orleans Public Library. Kids, teens, and adults are welcome to participate. This year, we are thrilled to be back in person while continuing to offer virtual options, and of course, the reading challenge of 20 minutes a day.

Read

After signing up, kids and teens can head to their local Library location to pick up one free book as a registration prize.

For participants of all ages, every 20 minutes you read (or a pre-reader is read to), mark your reading tracker. You can print a reading tracker yourself or pick one up at any Library location after you sign up. 

For every 200 minutes you read, complete the Achievement Form online or at a Library location to be entered into the prize drawing.

Audiobooks and e-Audiobooks count too.

Learn

Don’t miss the Library’s free summer programs for every age, from children to adults. From drawing classes to Summer STEM, we are especially delighted to host a full lineup of workshops and performers for kids, tweens, and teens.

Explore

Explore everything your Library has to offer by completing activities on the Bingo card. After completing your card, fill out the Achievement Form online or at a Library location to be entered into the prize drawing.

Why SUMMER FUN?

Libraries across the country host summer reading programs to encourage reading as a lifelong habit, maintain reading skills that children and teens have achieved throughout the school year, and increase interest in libraries. Also, it’s just plain fun.
