On Your Mark...Get Set... Go to Morton Library! 

How our Summer Reading Program works:

  • Sign up at the Children's Desk at the library. 
  • Check out books from the Morton Library.  
  • Write the titles of books you read on a log sheet that is kept at the library. 
  • Earn prizes when you reach reading goals.
  • Reading Goals: Read 5 books from the Children's Area (Elementary) or
    10 books from the Preschool & Early Readers Section of the Morton Public Library.
  • When a child listens to or reads a book on Tumblebooks,or reads a book on CD, it will count as a book towards their goal.  A Playaway View counts as one book towards a child's goal. 
  • Visit the children's desk to receive your prizes.
  • Last day to record books & receive prizes is Saturday, July 30.
  • Reach your goal and attend the Pool Party on Tuesday, August 2 from 7:00-8:30 pm.
