Why We Read

Summer reading is fun and playful — you can read anything you like! We encourage kids and adults alike to be creative with it and to make connections through entertaining events and activities.
Kids, print a reading log and then read for 720 minutes or complete fun alternate activities to finish the program and win prizes. Readers ages 13 and up can read for 900 minutes to win a limited edition DCL book bag. Print a log or track your minutes and finish online.
Help your school win a $250 prize in our new school contest. You can also help us reach our community reading goal of 7 million minutes. If we reach the goal, Douglas County Libraries Foundation will donate $500 to the Denver Dumb Friends League Buddy Center. Get reading!
