Summer Reading Challenge 2017

Summer Reading Challenge 2017
June 19 – September 4


A strong body of research shows that children’s reading skills slide during the summer months without practice. The Huntington Woods Library Summer Reading Challenge provides the opportunity and incentive for your child to maintain (or even improve!) their reading skills during the summer months. Consistency is the key! Build a library visit (or two!) into your weekly schedule. Stop by the library on the way to the pool or after camp.


Stop by the library to register with Ms. Joyce beginning June 19. Pick up a reading log, choose your necklace and brag tag (one of two designs) and start reading. When you read, jot down your minutes on your reading log and earn beads to decorate your necklace:


Reading levels:

• 15 minutes = solid color bead
• 30 minutes = sparkly bead
• 1 hour = shiny bead
• 2 hours = glow-in-the-dark bead
• 4 hours = charm

“Level Up” As You Read!

Example: If you read for 30 minutes on
Monday and earn a sparkly bead, then
read for 30 minutes on Tuesday and earn
another sparkly bead, you can exchange
your two sparkly beads for one shiny bead,
if you wish.

Plan a Design

Here are some examples:
• A pattern of sparkly and solid
• Five green beads of each type (solid,
sparkly, shiny, g-i-t-d)
• All glow-in-the-dark
• Bead, charm, bead, charm


• You must bring your log with you to
collect beads.
• If you are exchanging beads to “level
up” you must have the beads you wish
to trade with you.
Registration, collecting and trading
can only be done with youth services staff –
M,T,W,F 10:00 am – 2:00 pm and Th
