New Ulm Public Library’s summer reading program, “Dig Into Reading” begins on Monday, June 5, 2023 and runs through July 30, 2023. The summer reading program is open to ages birth to those entering their high school senior year.
This year reading logs will be available for pick up in the library starting Tuesday, May 30. Children up to the age of eleven can pick up a reading log in the children’s room. Read at least 20 minutes a day for a week to fulfill the reading goal. Each week they can stop by the children’s desk to check in with their logs and get a stamp. On the even weeks those checking in will get to spin the Wheel of Fun, to collect a prize. Collect all eight stamps and you’re finished!
Teens who are age twelve to those who are entering their senior year of high school in the fall of 2023 may pick up their logs at the service desk. Teens need to read at least a half an hour each day for a week to meet their reading goal. They will record their reading each week and can turn their logs in at the end of the program, no need to check in each week.
Summer reading participants can turn in their reading logs between July 31 and August 5; early or late reading logs will not be accepted. Children and teens who complete their reading logs by the end of eight weeks will be invited to choose a free book, fill out an entry for a grand prize, choose a temporary tattoo, and vote for a summer reading library prize.
