Summer Reading 2014


girl reading SR
Welcome to Children's Summer Reading at the Puyallup Public Library!  Children's Summer reading is open to everyone ages birth to grade 6.  Designed to keep young people reading during the long hot days of summer, the Puyallup Public Library's summer reading program offers fun incentives to help children maintain their reading skills. 

All children who spend time reading, listening to audio books, or being read to, can enter drawings for great prizes.  Plus, every child who reads (or is read to) at least 15 hours this summer will get a FREE book and a ticket to Northwest Trek / Pt Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, as well as free goodies at local retailers.  Early bird finishers will earn a ticket to the Tacoma Rainiers for Puyallup Public Library Night at Cheney Stadium on August 20th! 

The 2014 summer reading program runs from June 16th through August 16th and is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Puyallup Public Library, along with the Tacoma Rainiers.  Summer Reading is also sponsored by Northwest Trek / Pt Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, Round Table Pizza, Jersey Mike's Subs, McDonalds and Auntie Annie's Pretzels.
