Kenton Co. Public Library reminding NKY residents to celebrate Summer Reading though August 31

The Kenton County Public Library is the only library in the area that offers Summer Reading through the end of August. Participants do not need to live in Kenton County to participate. Residents of Campbell, Boone and Hamilton Counties are encouraged to track their daily reading with KCPL for a chance to win gift cards, T-shirts and more.

Everyone can create a habit of reading this summer with help from the library. Celebrate Summer Reading through August 31. SRC allows children, teens, and adults to win cool prizes just for reading or listening to a book.

Guidelines are:

• For Everyone: Read or listen five out of seven days each week to be entered in the weekly prize drawing.

• For Children (ages 0-12):

• Earn a book prize after completing their first week of reading.
• Complete a second week of reading to earn an SRC T-shirt or backpack.
• Read a total of 30 days to enter to win a grand prize basket. Baskets are on display at each branch.
• Get a sticker each time you turn in your weekly log. Collect them all! Five stickers in all.

New this year

The Kenton County Public Library has set a community goal of 100,000 days of reading this summer. We’ve already tracked more than 92,000 days. Everyone who helps us reach our goal will be entered to win a day pass to Silverlake the Family Place. There will be 100 winners. Children under 18 who win will be able to bring an adult. Stop by the library or visit kentonlibrary.org to see the thermometer tracker.

Beanstack, the reading tracker app

Everyone can track their reading with the Beanstack tracker app. Those who prefer a paper log can pick one up at the library. Participants should track their reading weekly or turn the paper log in weekly to be entered for the weekly prize drawing.
