Summer Reading 2017

Children – Teens – Adults

June 13th – August 17th

We have an exciting summer planned here at the Janet Carlson Calvert Library!  You’re just 4 simple steps away from getting the most out of your summer reading experience:

1.)  REGISTER – Children, teens, and adults are invited to register for Summer Reading anytime between June 13th – August 17th by calling, emailing, or stopping by the library.  (860-642-6207 or janetcarlsoncalvertlibrary@yahoo.com)

2.) READ & RECORD -Write down your book titles in one place, like the attached Bookmark or journal.

(Note to school-aged students: each book read counts towards the library’s summer reading program AND the Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge, so just keep one list! When school starts, Franklin students should submit their list to either JCC Library or the Franklin Elementary School Library by September 8th.)

3.) RETURN– Bring your list of completed books when you come to the Janet Carlson Calvert Library.  You’ll receive a ticket for each book read. Each ticket is a chance to win one of the spectacular gift baskets (now on display at the library!) at the end of the summer program on Thursday, August 17th.

Be sure to bring your list before or no later than 12:00pm on August 17th to receive your tickets. The basket drawings will be during our Summer Reading Finale – Ice Cream Social beginning at 1:00pm on August 17th. Need not be present to win.  We will notify registered winners by phone.
