Welcome to a new and reimagined Summer Reading Program!

 REGISTRATION BEGINS JUNE 1!SRP  Web Banner

The Stillwater Public Library will not have in-person programs this year, but we have an online program ready to keep you reading, learning, and having fun!

BOOKPOINTS

Summer Reading 2020 is all online using BookPoints. It's an easy to use, entertaining summer reading platform that will let you keep track of how much you've read and what you've been reading. We've also included learning and activity challenges to help you keep your summer packed with fun! Plus, you'll get to collect awesome digital badges! Meeting reading goals and completing challenges will earn you a lanyard with cool buttons that you can pick up at the end of the summer.

A FEW NOTES
  1. We're going to miss seeing you! Summer is usually a time that kids and teens flock to the library for performers, activities, and movies. We're sad we can't do those things this year but public health is important and we want to do our part to help keep our community safe.
  2. In past summers we've given out coupons and goodies throughout the summer to readers. That is not part of the program this year. Instead, everyone will get to win digital badges--and don't forget about the lanyards and buttons you can earn to pick up at the end of the program.
