To play, you need to contract with the children’s librarians to read at least 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week (children who are not yet reading can be read to). We fill out the contract when you come to register. Child must be present to register. You will also receive a special reading game bag with our official reading calendar and an “Early Bird” bonus activity card!


Every DAY your contract is met; you earn a coupon that can be redeemed for prizes at our prize table. Each week when you come to play the game, you get one roll of the dice to advance on the game board. For each week your contract is met, you earn an extra roll of the dice. You will also earn a raffle ticket to enter our weekly prize drawing. And if you follow the special directions on certain squares, you can earn EVEN MORE raffle tickets. Come in to play each week and pick up a LIBRARIES ROCK bonus activity card! Do the activity each week to earn EXTRA COUPONS!!

*OR…REGISTER the first time you come to play the reading game during any of our regularly scheduled reading game times. Just keep track of all the reading you do beginning Monday, June 25. Write it down and have your parents sign it. We let you use that towards meeting your contract the first time you play the game.

Many thanks to the Friends of the Penfield Public Library, and the many local businesses that are providing prizes for our summer reading program
