Boone Library's Summer Reading Program to Be Digital this Year


The Boone County Public Library's summer reading program is now entirely digital.

The library announced its reading program for all ages (preschool, youth, and adult) will go live online on June 1.

Complete details and prize lists will be available in the online reading program.

The library will not be distributing paper reading logs this year, but the preschool and youth reading logs will be available at to download and print for personal use. Prizes can be picked up at any BCPL location beginning August 1 or earlier, depending on when they are able to reopen their buildings. 

All prizes must be picked up by August 31.              

Boone County Summer Reading is a collaboration between Boone County Public Library, Boone County Schools, and Boone County Parks Department. “We have found that by combining our resources and creating a shared vision, we can better serve the literacy needs of our community and more effectively implement the Summer Reading program,” a news release said.
