Summer Reading 2021: Reading Colors Your World

Summer Reading is on the horizon and we are so excited about this year’s theme! Our theme this year is Reading Colors Your World and we have been working hard to make sure that it is going to be a great summer.  If you are interested in volunteering for the library this year I would encourage you to do so, but we will not be holding in person volunteer hours. All volunteer activities will be done at home or virtually this summer in order to keep you safe.

Here’s how it will work:

1) Fill out and have a parent or guardian sign your volunteen application.  It is important that you and your parent/guardian are aware that since this year’s summer reading program will be virtual, pictures and videos that are submitted may be posted on the library’s social media pages.  If you are not comfortable with that you don’t need to complete those activities. If you return the form with a signature and send me pictures/video, I will be reviewing them and posting them.

2) Sign up for summer reading! You can sign up and participate virtually with the library’s Beanstack challenge (I’ll send out the link once it’s live). Paper logs will also be available to print off if you would like to use that.

3) Complete Virtual VolunTEEN activities! This year the VolunTEEN activities are part of your summer reading challenge and you can earn a ticket for completing the badge.  If you would like to receive credit for your activity that you complete, send me an email and I will keep track for you. You may repeat activities, again just email me to let me know. You will receive the time credited for the activity.

Activities include:

  • Record your own booktalk (2 hrs)
  • Pick up Litter (use gloves and sanitizer (based on the time spent completing the activity)
  • Write positive messages outside; chalk your driveway, make a sign to hang in your window (2 hrs.)
  • Reshare content from the Library’s social media pages (1 hr.)
  • Hoopla Review: check out something from Hoopla (book/audiobook/music/movie/tv show) and write a review of it. (2 hrs)
  • Meme Yourself: Take a funny meme and make it library/book/summer reading related  (2 hrs.)
  • Read to Someone Else (1 hr)
  • Create a YA Booklist based on the theme Reading Colors Your World (2 hrs)
