San Bernardino Library’s Summer Reading Program is underway

The San Bernardino Public Library’s and the Friends of the San Bernardino Public Library’s Summer Reading Program has returned. The free program, which will run through Aug. 3, is open to readers of all ages.

The goal of the program is to encourage reading, especially by kids, during the summer months. This year’s theme is “Read! Renew! Repeat!” which encourages skill development and exploration, both in books and outdoors.

Participating readers will be eligible for a drawing to earn prizes based upon their age. Kids will be eligible for meal coupons from restaurants like In-N-Out Burger and Jersey Mike’s. Teens can win earbuds and a Viva La Boba voucher for teens, and adults can win free movies and bags of books. Grand prize winners at each age level will receive Amazon gift cards.

Drawings for the prizes will be held at the completion of the program in early August.

Participants earn online badges based upon their time spent reading. Each badge earned will give participants an entry into the prize drawing. Teens and adults will also be able to write online reviews of the books they read to earn extra prize entries.

The Summer Reading Program will be administered online. Participants can sign-up at sbpl.beanstack.org or download the Beanstack app to track their reading minutes, share book reviews, and gain entries for the grand prize raffle at the end.
