Summer Reading Challenge 2018

A strong body of research shows that children’s reading skills slide during the summer months without practice. The Huntington Woods Library Summer Reading Challenge provides the opportunity and incentive for your child to maintain (or even improve!) their reading skills during the summer months. Consistency is the key! Build a library visit (or two!) into your weekly schedule. Stop by the library on the way to the pool or after camp.


Early Literacy Challenge: Babies, Toddlers & Preschoolers

Pick up a game board at the Youth Services desk then collect a stamp each time you visit the library this summer. Collect 10 stamps to earn a free book to keep; collect 10 more (20 total) and earn a Huntington Woods Library tote bag!

The Bead Challenge: for those entering grades 1-6

Pick up a reading log at the Youth Services desk and start reading! Every time you read, keep track of how long you read and record it on your log. As soon as you’ve got minutes to redeem, stop by the library with your log to get your necklace and beads. Collecting and trading CAN be done during Fruit Camp visits to the library.

Summer Reading Quest: for students entering grades 6-12

Join the Quest to read new things this summer! Everything counts: books, magazines, audio books, graphic novels, etc. Sign up by texting your name and grade to Ms. Joyce at 248-438-5486. Each time you read, send me a text with your name, how long you read and what you’re reading. Each half hour you report earns you one entry for our weekly drawing for prizes and gift cards. Winners will be notified by text.

Unaccompanied Adults

During children’s programs parts of the Library are reserved for children, their parents or responsible adult caregivers. No adult (with the exception of staff and City personnel) may register to attend a children’s program, or be admitted to a children’s program, unless accompanied by a child. Out of concern for the safety of young patrons, adults who are unaccompanied by a child or children in the children’s program area may be questioned by staff, and may be asked to leave the area.
