2019 Summer Reading Program

Blast off into summer reading with the Universe of Stories summer reading program at the Scandinavia Public Library!

Research shows that reading only 20 minutes per day benfits both children and adults, and joining a summer reading program can help individuals of all ages reach this goal.

We've hung the solar system from our ceiling at the Scaninavia Public Library. Record your time spent reading on a reading log, then bring it to the library. Reading program participants will receive a die-cut rocket, and the time you spend reading will be the fuel to make your rocket soar from the sun towards Pluto!

Reading for 20 minutes per day will get your rocket from the sun out to Pluto by the end of the summer. If you read more, you can pick up a star from outside the solar system, turn around, and bring it back to the sun!

Just as in real life, the more you read, the farther you'll go!
