Sunday, June 7 – Friday, July 31, 2020

Register now! Sign up at any time during the summer

Read, discover, and learn with us this summer! The Wadsworth Public Library has clubs for babies, kids, teens, and adults, so everyone can participate and win prizes. 

UPDATE 8/8/2020: Readers may pick up prizes in person in the Children’s Department. Readers may also choose to visit the drive-up window to pick up all earned prizes at the end of Summer Reading Club, beginning August 1 through August 22. Please call the Children’s Department at 330.335.1295 to arrange a pickup. Raffle winners will be announced August 12.

We're going digital this year with Wandoo Reader for registration, logging entries, and tracking milestones. With the Family Management Portal, tracking multiple participants at once is easy! Wandoo Reader also lets you earn certificates that you can print and hang up at home; enter book titles and let us know what you're reading; enter book reviews to share your thoughts with Library staff and patrons; and play along with the game and extra challenges that may pop up along the way.

Read to Me: Birth–Age 2 

We want to encourage you to read with your young child to help them develop, learn & grow! This simple program offers 3 incentive prizes for every 10 books you read together this summer. Go at your own pace and just keep reading!

Summer Reading Club: Ages 3–Grade 6

Encouraging children to read every day throughout the summer is the best way to keep their brains active and avoid the summer slide! We want to encourage healthy reading habits so children in our community grow up to be lifelong readers. In this program, children are asked to read as often as they can and keep track of their time spent reading. We are challenging you to read for at least 20 minutes per day. For every 200 minutes read, they win a prize - it's that simple! 

200 minutes: Playing Cards
400 minutes: Book
600 minutes: Key chain case
800 minutes: Sunglasses
1000 minutes: Book & bookmark
1100 minutes: Raffle entry for a $50 gift card


Teen Summer Reading Club: Grade 7–12

Who says Summer Reading Club is just for kids? Not us! We want to encourage all of our community's youth to keep reading throughout the summer. Teens are challenged to read for 20 minutes a day. For every 200 minutes read, they win a prize - it's that simple! 

200 minutes: Candy
400 minutes: Book 
600 minutes: 3D Bookmark
800 minutes: Local Business Gift Card
1000 minutes: Book
1100 minutes: Raffle entry for a $50 gift card 


Adult Summer Reading Club: Ages 18+

You're never too old for Summer Reading Club! The club is simple - just read, listen, or watch for more chances to WIN! Log every time you read or listen to a book (print or digital) or watch a film. For every entry, your name will be entered into a drawing for a gift card from a Wadsworth Small Business! You can also add your own reviews that will be shared on the Library's website and social media.
