Dig Deeper: Read, Investigate, Discover! at your Library
Summer Reading 2020
Reading is a great way to discover the world around you this summer. You can explore familiar stories, or discover new gems, all while earning great prizes for doing what you already love to do: read!
The Long Beach Public Library challenges children, teens and adults of all ages to dig into books all summer long with reading programs designed just for them, along with plenty of virtual workshops to inspire a love of learning and discovery.
This summer we’re taking the adventure online! Register for Summer Reading here.
Summer Reading for kids is free, fun, and a perfect way to keep kids learning wherever they are!
Children are asked to read (or be read to) five days out of the week, and complete two activities from the Activities List or write book reviews on the remaining two days to be eligible for a prize. Some prizes will be virtual, and others can be picked up in person at a later date.
Reading and the Activities List will keep you busy discovering and learning all summer long, but don't forget to tune in to our virtual programs this summer as well. Each week we'll host virtual workshops and crafts to entertain and educate.
Teen Summer Reading challenges teens to discover books centered on discovering the hidden gems in the world around them. Teens can pick books from the library's list of recommended reads or can go on their own adventure with any book they like. Reading books or writing book reviews earns teens entries into the grand prize drawing at the end of the summer.
Teens can also discover their inner maker this summer with Make/Create/Design, a four-week series of digital workshops, activities, and challenges that blend art and technology.
Adult Summer Reading is a great way to get out of your comfort zone and explore the world around you with books about archaeology, gardening, criminology or really any topic you want to dig into. Adults can read from the library's list of recommended reads or choose to forge their own path by reading any book they choose. Reading books or writing reviews earns them a chance to win big in our drawing at the end of the summer.
Books are a sure way to learn, but don't forget to check out our digital resources as well, which can help you delve into genealogy, computer skills, world languages, and more!
