Summer Reading Program Info

Registration starts on June 7th!

Oregon Library has a summer reading program for all ages, from birth to the oldest adult!  .

Kick-Off Week of June 7th-12th

A chance to win $10 in Chamber Bucks for registering for the 2021 Summer Library Program.

How does it work?

At the end of each day, we will randonly select a name from those who registered that day for the 2021 Summer Library Program. The only thing you need to do to enter is register using Beanstack. We will have a total of six winners.

What are Chamber Bucks? 

They work just like cash or a check at participating local Oregon businesses. A great way to support and try one of Oregon's many wonderful businesses.

Oregon Public Library has a summer reading program for all ages, from birth to the oldest adult!  By reading and completing activities, you can earn prizes with a chance to win a grand prize. We have four age categories for our reading programs: Read to Me (0-4), Children (5-11), Teen (12-17), and Adult (18 and up). Each program has its own requirements and prizes.
