    Reading log must be received by July 31 to collect prizes.

Some things to note:

Read for as long as you like! Your days do not have to be in a row. All kinds of reading and listening count!

Each child is allowed one reading log for the summer.

Looking for reading suggestions?

Booklists for preschool, elementary and middle school aged kids are available.

Videos, featuring our staff talking about some of their favorite reads for preschool listeners and for readers for every grade level, are on the EPL YouTube page.

Media Match Jr., EPL’s recommendation service for the youngest members of our community, is another great place to go! Start by filling out our kids form which asks additional questions to make sure we can make the best possible suggestions for children.
