Reading Takes You Everywhere!

This summer, let “reading take you everywhere” with Altadena Library District! Get started on Saturday, June 2, when online registration opens at altadenalibrary.beanstack.org and pick up a printed “passport” at our Main Library (600 E. Mariposa St.) or Bob Lucas Branch (2659 Lincoln Ave.) to start collecting stamps!


Our Summer Reading Programs

Children (Babies through Students Entering 5th Grade)

Child participants earn one stamp for every 8 hours they read (or are read to) throughout the summer; that evens out to about 20 minutes of reading per day. Prizes include a free book, an Altadena Owl or bunch of candy (depending on the child’s age), a free kids meal at Chipotle, and a VIP experience at our end-of-summer party on Saturday, August 18.

 

Besides reading, our libraries will host weekly educational performers on Tuesdays, weekly movie days for kids, and a wide variety of story times that are tailored to the unique needs of each age group.

 

Teens (Students entering 6th Grade through 12th Grade)

Teen (and pre-teen) participants also earn one stamp for every 8 hours they read throughout the summer. Prizes include a free book, a bunch of candy, a coupon for Chipotle, and a VIP experience at our end-of-summer party on Saturday, August 18.

 

With a full slate of teen-specific events, boredom is out of the question this summer! DIY Clubs, cooking classes, teen gaming, movie screenings… all of this and more is in store for teens.

 

Event details are in every passport and can be found online at www.altadenalibrary.org/programs.
