Summer reading programs for kids are about to start! Not only does the Pikes Peak Library District have a summer reading program, but you can also do ones from Barnes and Noble and the Air Force Academy Falcons. If you know of any local bookstores that are doing summer reading programs, please let me know – I’d love to add more to this list!
Pikes Peak Library Summer Reading Program (Summer of Adventure)
Eligible ages: 0-18
Registration: Online or at a library branch beginning June 1st. Go here for more information.
Prizes: The PPLD reading program looks like it is much the same as it was in 2017, when it was converted to an online program and the coupons to local merchants were done away with. They are promising prizes this year, but I don’t know what those are.
Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Program
Eligible ages: 1st through 6th grade
Registration: None required, go here for more information (click on the link to download the reading journal PDF, which has the info you need)
Prizes: One free book from a selection
Air Force Falcons Summer Reading Program
Note: A reader reported that this may no longer be being offered. I can’t find a way to contact the director, but I will update here if I can find something out!
Eligible ages: All ages
Registration: Go here to register and find out more.
Prizes: Free tickets to variety of AFA sporting events
