Welcome to Summer Reading!

Cobb Library’s Summer Reading Program is an all-ages reading program that supports family bonding time, community engagement, and shared learning experiences. We’ve included activities designed to encourage participation by the whole community because learning doesn’t stop when you leave school.

  • Children: Begin building language and reading skills. Reading to young children, even infants, increases word recognition and vocabulary!
  • Students: Students are at risk of losing 2-3 months of reading and math skills over the summer. Keep students learning and engaged by encouraging them to complete Summer Reading!
  • Adults: Make time for yourself to experience the joys of reading – it’s a great way to relieve stress and strengthen your brain! As little as 15 minutes a day is proven to make a difference!

Participating is simple:

  1. Create an account on Beanstack and join Summer Reading.
  2.  Log minutes read and/or activities completed to earn Bingo.
  3. One Bingo earns you a prize at your library and an entry into the grand prize drawing.
  4. Black out your Bingo board for another entry into the grand prize drawing (or a second prize for children).
