Paws to READ with NPL's

Read and win with NPL's Summer Reading Program

Summer reading isn't just for kids. There are categories for all ages - from babies to grandparents, and everyone in between! To participate, simply register online or at any NPL location starting June 21st. Then read books and track your minutes (for youth) or write brief reviews of your books read (for adults) to earn prizes - it's that simple!

In addition to receiving incentives for completing reading milestones, participants can enter drawings for an opportunity to win one grand prize for each age group:
