East Brunswick Library launches online summer reading activities

The East Brunswick Public Library’s annual summer reading activities will take place online.

This year’s theme is “Imagine Your Story,” and the library has special challenges for readers of all ages.

By completing reading and learning challenges, readers can win prizes. The program has three challenge levels: kid, teen and adult. Summer reading runs through Sept. 7.

The children’s program is for ages 5-12. Children can gain points to win free books in various ways, including each day they read, the summer learning bingo board, writing book reviews, and special weekly missions. There is also a similar summer reading program for younger children through the library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten initiative.

To make registration easier, families can now register together, and parents can manage summer reading logging. Children can also maintain their summer reading logs independently.

The teen program is for ages 12-18. Library users turning 13 during the summer can choose whether they want to participate in either the kids or teen program. Through the summer, there are several different ways to earn points for prizes by reading books and completing tasks on a bingo board. Points can be redeemed for book prizes.

Adults participating in the summer reading program can earn a chance to win prizes by completing a mix of reading goals, as well as service and community-oriented objectives. There are also several special online programs planned for adults over the summer, including a Fantasy Trivia night, Virtual Open Mic Night, TED Talks Viewing and Discussion.
