Track Your Reading

Kids (babies through grade 5) are invited to join our summer reading challenge at the Woburn Public Library! (Grades 6-12 can try the Teen Program).  This year we’re counting days instead of minutes or pages. It’s simple. Did you read today? Then add it to your log! Your goal is to read at least a little bit every day this summer. We recommend reading at least 15-20 minutes a day. Here’s how it works:

  • REGISTER. Sign up online here or sign up in person at the library to enroll in WPL Children’s Summer Reading Challenge.
    • If you sign up online please be sure to stop by the library to pick up your registration kit!
    • When you register you will receive a reading log and summer reading necklace
  • TRACK YOUR PROGRESS. Log each day that you read until August 10 and earn prizes along the way. Stop by the library throughout the summer to track your progress.
    • Older kids will get to pick one bead per day on their reading log.
    • Babies and Toddlers will pick out one rubber ducky for each week of participation.
  • BONUS PRIZES. Read at least 40 days during our Summer Reading program to win:
    • Available for all ages: a raffle ticket for a chance to win Canobie Lake tickets or tickets to a Bruins Game and a chance to high five all of the players!
    • Available for grades K-6 ONLY: Topsfield Fair Read & Win Prize Package (1 admission ticket, 1 hot dog & drink voucher, 2 ride tickets)
