Get Ready, Get Set, READ!

Free Library Summer Reading Program

The Summer Reading Program at the White Cloud Community Library is a fun way for children ages 2-18 to continue developing their reading skills throughout the summer and participate in programs that are both fun and educational.  We believe that it is very important for children to continue reading during the summer months so that they don’t lose the skills they have worked so hard to gain during the school year.  This summer, our theme will be "On Your Mark, Get Set...READ!!"  We will have plenty of fun programs and incentives that follow this theme.

Don’t worry if your child is signed up for other summer programs (such as Project Focus, Summer Magic, or VBS) or if you have extended vacation plans! You can still participate and earn prizes because all of your reading is done at home! Check out our FAQ section for more details on how the program works.

The summer reading program and sign-up begins with a special Scholastic Buy One Get One Free Book Fair kickoff event.  The book fair will be held the week of June 6th-10th daily from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm with a special visit from Clifford the Big Red Dog on Friday from 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm.  Signing up is incredibly easy.  Just stop at the library the week of June 6th - June 10th, and we'll ask you for some basic information (names, grade, phone number), ask you to set a reading goal, and give you a log book plus some extra goodies. Take your reading log home, start reading, and bring it back (anytime we're open!) to earn fun prizes!

Children who meet their reading goal by August 5th will be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing.  Children ages 2-10 who are entered in the Grand Prize drawing will be eligible to win one of two bikes.  Children ages 11- 18 who are entered in the Grand Prize Drawing will be eligible to win one of two mall gift cards.  Other grand prizes include:  A Meijer gift card, a Family Pass to Air Zoo, and much more.

During the summer, you are welcome to attend any, or all, of our Special Program EventsSummer Movies will be held every Tuesday at 2:00 pm.  Special programs and Performances will be held every Thursday at 2:00 pm.

Remember, this program is COMPLETELY 100% FREE!
