Pima County Summer Reading Program
Plus don't forget the great program offered at the Pima County Library for kids or teens! We have such a great library system here. If your local library doesn't have it, you can request it. If the county doesn't own the book and it has been out for more than a year, they will search and borrow it from another library participating in the Inter library loan program. It doesn't cost you a cent.
How to participate
Using the Gameboard
  • Visit your local library and pick up a free gameboard any time between May 27 and July 24.
  • Start counting the time you spend reading.
  • Mark your progress on the gameboard.
  • Every time you read 6 hours, bring your gameboard into any Pima County Public Library and get a prize.
You can also track all the kids progress online this year. Click here to visit their website!
