EVPL is kicking off the annual Summer Learning Program on Saturday, May 25 at all eight locations! The Summer Learning Program is an opportunity for participants to earn incentives as they read throughout the summer months. SLP started as an opportunity to help students prevent summer slide while out of school for summer break. Over the years, the program has evolved into a fun experience for all ages!

This year’s theme is Our Summer: Reading is for Everyone. EVPL encourages readers of all ages to be a part of reading this summer. No matter your interest or reading level, Our Summer is for you. Participants can earn incentives as they read through each level of the program. Books can be from the EVPL collections or your own. Audiobooks and Ebooks count towards your total. Kids can be read to or read to someone else. It all counts!

Readers can count number of hours read or the number of books read. The first level is completed when you reach one book or one hour read. You will be able to spin a prize wheel at any EVPL location for a prize! The wheel can be spun again when you reach the next level- ten books or hours read. The program is completed when you reach twenty books or hours. At that level, you will receive an entry for one of the grand prizes. The grand prize is one (1) $100 gift card for each age level: kids, teens, and adults. For readers who want to go above and beyond, an additional grand prize entry can be earned when you read 100 books or hours.

The Summer Learning Program runs until Saturday, August 3. You can participate by picking up a reading log at any EVPL location beginning Saturday, May 25 or by using the Beanstack app. Either way, read this summer for your chance to win amazing prizes!

Our Summer 2019 winners are:

  • Youth: Severina B.
  • Teen: Nathan D.
  • Adult: Nancy S.
