Summer Reading

A light blue slide with the text "Help us improve summer reading! Please take our 2022 Summer Reading Survey to give us your feedback!"

Thank you for joining us for Summer Reading this year! Please let us know what you thought by filling out our 2022 Summer Reading Survey here. We really value your feedback, and your responses will shape our future summer reading programs!

We are so very impressed by all the wonderful reading our Summer Reading participants did this year! All combined, our Children and Teen Summer Reading Participants together read an astounding 335,234 minutes! That also works out to 5587 hours and 14 minutes; or 232 days, 19 hours, and 14 minutes; or 33 weeks, 19 hours, and 14 minutes! That's more than half a year of reading all added up, all done by 320 local children and teens and done in less than 60 days!

See below for the breakdown of how much each age group read when all added together:

  • Children (Grades 1-5):
    • 192,780 Minutes
    • 3213 Hours
    • 133 Days and 21 Hours
    • 19 Weeks and 21 Hours
  • Teens (Grades 6-12)
    • 142,454 Minutes
    • 2374 Hours and 14 Minutes
    • 98 Days, 22 Hours, and 14 Minutes
    • 14 Weeks, 22 Hours, and 49 Minutes

We are very grateful to all our Summer Reading participants for helping us make this summer such a success! We had a great time seeing everyone, stamping tickets, and having you join us for programs and events! As the staff, we had a lot of fun, and we hope you did, too!
