Summer Reading 2021

Summer Reading 2021 Tails and Tales Logo

This year's Summer Reading theme is "Tails and Tales," and thanks to generous support from Friends of the Boca Raton Public Library, we have plenty of opportunities for you to roar into reading and enter to win great prizes.

Summer Reading 2021 Badge BookBabies and preschoolers can earn prizes at 6, 12, and 15 hours of reading with a parent or caregiver.

Children in elementary school will receive a free Badge Book when they sign up, which they can use to follow along with the Beanstack app as they read and do fun activities to earn virtual tickets. Tickets enable them to enter drawings at the end of summer for the chance to win passes to Palm Beach Zoo or Animal EDventure Park!

Summer Reading 2021 Tote Bag ’Tweens and teens in Grades 6–12 can log the minutes they read online for the chance to win a wireless karaoke microphone or a portable speaker at the end of summer.

Adults are eligible for an end-of-summer drawing for book lovers’ gift sets when they log the books they read online.

Everyone who signs up for Summer Reading on Beanstack receives a “Tails and Tales” tote (while supplies last)!

Summer Reading starts on June 1 and ends on August 31.
