Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program

Reading Takes You Everywhere

Join the Winona Public Library Staff for a summer of adventure that will help maintain & improve your reading skills! Our free program rewards children and young adults who read daily on their own time.

Starting on June 4th, sign up on our website or come to the Youth Services Desk. You will receive a reading log and sheet of stickers to track your minutes. 1 sticker = 10 minutes of completed reading time. For every 100 minutes of completed reading, bring your reading log to the Youth Services Desk to earn a prize. There are 5 prize levels total. It’s easy: read what you want, where you want, when you want. Read a book, magazine, or screen; be read to by an adult; listen to audiobooks—it all counts!

Prizes can be claimed from June 18 through August 11th.
