Lake County, Calif. (May 30, 2023) – Get ready for the Lake County Library's exciting summer reading challenge, starting on Thursday, June 1. This year's theme invites all to "Find Your Voice!”

By participating in the library's summer reading program, children, teens, and adults have a chance to win prizes, ranging from stickers and small toys for kids to a Kindle Fire tablet or local business gift cards.

Engaging in this program is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to challenge themselves to read more. For students, reading during the summer break helps prevent learning loss and sets them up for a successful start to the next school year. Reading for pleasure also builds vocabulary and literacy skills.

The library offers tailored programs for pre-K, kids, teens, and adults. Even children who haven't yet mastered reading on their own can participate, with parents recording the books they read together.

Starting June 1, residents can register for the summer reading challenge on the Library's website or in person at the library. Registration remains open until August 5, ensuring ample time for signing up. Simply visit the library website at and click on "Summer Reading" to get started.

Residents are also invited to visit their local branch in person to sign up. On Saturday, June 3, starting at 10:30 am, each library will host a Super Sign Up event complete with sidewalk chalk and fun!

Once registered, participants can dive into books and earn points by logging their reading progress either online or by visiting the library. All types of reading material borrowed from the library counts, including eBooks, print books, audiobooks, magazines, and comics.

To make summer reading even more enjoyable, the library offers enticing prizes. Adults and teens have a chance to win exciting rewards through a prize drawing at the end of the program. Kids can earn fun toys and stickers. The more points participants earn, the higher their chances of winning. The prizes are generously provided by the Friends of the Lake County Library, a community non-profit membership organization.

Upon reaching 1,000 points, participants will also have a book donated to the library in their name by the Friends of the Lake County Library. The book will bear their name, commemorating their reading achievement, and they will have the privilege of being the first person to check it out.
