How it Works:

  • Register for an account. Even if you registered for summer reading last year, you need to establish a new account for summer 2020.
  • Start reading and recording your book titles.  There will be no in-person reporting this year. Earn digital badges and record the title and author of every book you read between June 16 and August 31.  Pick up a summer reading "to go" packet that contains beads and a neck chain. We will have the packets available under the tent in front of the library. Stop by and pick one up.  Don't forget to bring one to a friend and tell them about summer reading.  Reward yourself with another bead every time you finish a book or read another 50 pages.  Call us at the library if you need more beads!  203-426-3851.
  • Young Adult Summer Reading for incoming Grades 6-12: register and start logging your reading until the end of the summer. Read whatever you want - for every book you read, you increase your chances at winning e-gift cards every week! 

Jun 05 - Sep 09

I like the part where they said all the Japanese words

This was a very good book about Raina accomplishing her fears. She is afraid of vomit and she needs to go to therapy but she is embarrassed about it to tell her friends. But soon she tells them that she goes to therapy and her friends are very supportive. She overcomes her fears and gets even closer with her friends now. She even made a new friend. At first she was mean to Raina but, Raina got to know her and now they are friends. This book also teaches us to get to know someone first before you judge them.
