Sign up for Summer Reading at the Library
“Libraries ROCK!” is the theme of this year’s Summer Reading Program at the Clermont County Public Library.
You can win prizes for each level of reading fun completed, plus be entered to win tickets to the Cincinnati Zoo, Riverbend, the Aronoff or Cincinnati Nature Center.
Best of all, students can keep their reading skills sharp so when they return to school in August, they won’t have to relearn skills developed the previous year.
It’s easy to earn points for prizes — read a book, graphic novel, magazine or listen to an audiobook and log the number of minutes you spend reading. You can win a prize for every 200 minutes read. You can earn up to three prizes. All ages can participate.
You can use your summer reading list from school to complete levels, or check out a bestseller. Don’t forget to check out one of the library’s many digital download options, too.
You can sign up for Summer Reading starting May 1, and the program runs June 1 to Aug. 1.

It’s easy to participate:
• Read, be read to or listen to a book. For every 200 minutes of reading, you can win a prize. Visit your local branch to pick a prize.
• Log the minutes read here starting June 1.
• Each time you complete 200 minutes of reading and log the time here, you are entered to win a grand prize: Zoo Family Season Pass, Aronoff gift certificate, Cincinnati Nature Center family membership or Riverbend gift certificate.
• In response to suggestions made by our participants last year to make the program more challenging and individualized, we added more activities. Each activity is worth one point. When five activities are completed, the participant has completed a mission and will earn a gold, silver, bronze, platinum or special badge. Attend a program at the library and earn a secret code that is worth one activity toward completing a mission. For completing a mission, you are entered to win a prize: Choice of $50 gift certificate to Recreations Outlet, $50 gift certificate for Scene 75 or a coupon book for 12 Frisch’s Big Boy sandwiches. These prizes will be awarded in mid-June. After six weeks, a drawing will occur to reward one winner who has completed a mission. The winner will have a choice of a $50 gift certificate to either Recreations Outlet or Scene 75.
• July 1, a drawing will take place for King’s Island day passes. Four individuals will win one day pass. The drawing will consist of participants who have completed at least one reading level of 200 minutes.
