Pequot Library’s summer reading program returns

The summer reading program for children at the Pequot Library begins on Tuesday, June 22, and runs through Aug. 24. Open to pre-readers through fifth graders, sign-up is available now in the Children’s Department. This summer’s reading theme is “Every Hero has a Story.” The goal of the program is to encourage kids to read throughout the summer.

Children earn prizes for time spent reading and raffle tickets for bigger rewards. Each child chooses his or her own superhero marker to represent them. As they progress in time spent reading, the child moves his or her marker along a clothesline around the Children’s Department, in a progression of time. Any book read at home, on vacation, or at the library will be eligible for the game. Raffle prize winners will be drawn at the end of the Summer Reading Program.

Pequot Library’s Summer Reading Program is conducted as part of an initiative by The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP). CLSP is a consortium of states working together to provide high-quality summer reading material for kids at the most reasonable cost possible to their public libraries. Pequot Library has planned related “Hero Story” single events for kids during the summer. Visit for more details.
