Summer Reading 2019
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. Your first log will get you a free voucher to swim at The Splash!
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.
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!)
Free Summer Activities
Come celebrate the end of Summer Reading with free hot dogs and snow cones (while supplies last), a bounce house, and more! You can use the Astrobucks that you earned during the summer to shop for prizes in the Astrostore!
