“Ice Cream for Books!”


Come into the library and sign up for the summer reading incentive program on June 1. The last day to receive a DQ treat will be on August 1. This program is for beginning readers who can read mostly on their own to children entering 8th grade.

When you sign up, you will receive a reading log, a bag, and a bookmark.  As you read books this summer, print the titles on the log and have a parent/guardian initial after each title. Parents are encouraged to help choose the appropriate reading level of books for their children. 


Juvenile Chapter Book and Teen Book Readers

2 Books =1 DQ card  (1 card/week)


Beginning Picture Book Readers

(These readers should be able to read mostly on their own.)

3 books = 1 DQ card (1 card/week)


Bring your reading list to the library WEEKLY to earn a DQ card.  You may receive only 1 DQ card per child per week. We do not give out coupons for past weeks.


For each reward given out, you may write your name on a scoop of ice cream to make the largest ice cream cone in the city!
