Summer Reading Club

If you're age 0-18, you are invited to join the annual Summer Reading Club! Simply sign up at the Sherman Public Library starting June 3rd and receive a reading log as well as a free book of your choice.

Color in a star/square on the reading log for every book or hour you read or are read to (audiobooks count!). After completing your reading log, turn it in for a free book of your choice and an Astrobuck. Collect your Astrobucks so that you can use them to purchase prizes at the End of Summer Reading Extravaganza on August 3rd.

A child can receive up to 5 books by completing 5 logs. Each log turned in will be entered into a drawing at the end of summer. The last day to get books and enter the drawing is August 3rd.

Reading can also get you a free voucher to swim at The Splash!

Summer Teen Volunteer Program

We’re looking for teens ages 12-18 to help sign up people for the Summer Reading Club and hand out Reading Club books and prizes. Applications available now at the Sherman Public Library, or print one off online and turn it in at the front desk.

Volunteer experience looks great on college, job, and scholarship applications! (There’s also a Teen Volunteer Party at the end of the summer!)
