You all know how much I love the Brooklyn Public Library. There are so many reasons why I love it. The access to free books, the kids events and now this; The Summer Reading Program.

My friend Josina told me about this program that is exclusively available at the library. And guess what? It’s free!

It works like this:

1. You go to the library
2. Head to the children’s section
3. Ask to sign up for the Summer Reading program
4. The librarian will hand you all the materials you need.

You will get a “Reading Log,” a booklet which is numbered inside from 1 – 30. Here you will write down the 30 books that you read to your son or daughter (or both) over the summer. Next to the title of the books are stars which enable you to rate how much you and your child liked the book you read.

When you have completed the the 30 books, return the booklet and….get this?… you get a prize! To be honest, I don’t know what the prize it, but we will find out at the end of the summer and let you know.

You can also sign up for Summer Reading online! Visit: and register your child here. You can login in here and write reviews to the books you’ve read.

Don’t be shy! Sign up for Summer Reading today!
