Summer Reading 2020

CHILDREN

BEANSTACK/READING LOGS

New this year, record your summer reading on our new summer reading platform, Beanstack! You can also download the Beanstack app and look for South Milwaukee Public Library. Otherwise, we have paper logs available outside the library in the bin marked “Summer Reading Logs,” or available to print online.

We will have a raffle drawing each week for a gift card! You must read one hour a week to be entered into the weekly raffle drawing and you must turn in your reading log, so you can be entered into the drawing. The first time you turn in a reading slip, you’ll be officially registered for the program and will win a Cousins coupon. The coupon will be placed in an envelope with your name on it, in a box labeled “Summer Reading Prizes.” If you participate in the reading program in some way throughout the summer, you’ll win a free book at the end. Details on picking up the free book will be provided later.

If you want a second reading challenge, pick up a Genre Challenge log. Complete the Genre Challenge, turn it in with your reading log, and you’ll get another raffle ticket for the week!

EVENTS

All events will be taking place virtually on Facebook, while some, like Craft Kit & Mystery STEM Bag, are crafts that you can take home. If you miss a virtual event, the video will be available online for up to a week.

Check our Children’s Event Calendar page for more information on events.
