Registration for our 2021 Summer Library Program opens on June 1! Sign up to read your way to fun prizes all summer long from June 19–August 13. This year's SLP theme is 'Tails & Tales.' Wondering what it's all about? Check out age-specific details below.
Get started with our summer library challenges using our Beanstack Tracker app, available for download to your favorite device on Google Play and the App Store.
Whether this summer finds you at the beach or under a shady tree in your own back yard, earn chances to win weekly prizes (or the Grand Prize of a Kindle Paperwhite) by participating in TPL’s “Tails & Tales” Adult Summer Library Program.
To learn/binge/listen your way to a great prize, just attend a virtual program, download and review ebooks, magazines or audiobooks, stream award-winning films and documentaries from around the world with Kanopy, or use hoopla digital to access a wide range of movies, TV shows, instructional videos, and popular series from The Great Courses.TEEN
Are you confident enough to join the Teen Summer Reading Challenge? Track your pages to help the Teen Department win the grand prize by reading the 30,000 page goal by August 13. Participate by attending teen virtual programs, competing in online challenges (Instagram @TroyTAB), and collecting prizes. Teen prizes can be picked up at the Troy Farmer's Market or Adult Reference Desk.
You can also win prizes by logging reading points, completing certain activities, writing book reviews, and entering a chance at weekly raffle drawings. Watch this video to learn more about the specifics of the Teen summer reading program.
Join our reading Challenge for Listeners and Readers! It is never too early to start loving books so this year our Listeners, children ages 0-5, can count each time a book is read to them by a parent or caregiver. Do you reread favorite books? Count each time you read it!
Readers in grades 1-6 can track hours read, participate in our activity challenges, attend virtual programs, and write short book reviews.
All participants will earn prizes along the way and chances to win one of our Grand Prizes! Watch this video to find out more.
