Summer Learning & Reading at Brighton Me

Summer Learning is for everyone and the most important part is to HAVE FUN with it!

Pre-Registration

Between June 1 and June 23, you can pre-register for our annual Summer Learning and Reading Kickoff Event for kids and family by clicking the link above.

Once you are pre-registered, you can pick up your first bingo board at the outdoor kickoff event on Friday, June 25 from 9am-11am (at the pavilion behind the town pool).  The first 250 families at the Kickoff party will also receive a bag of summer learning themed goodies!

Want to pre-register but can’t get online? Call or stop in at the library and see a Librarian who can complete the pre-registration for you.

Registration

Can’t make it to the Kickoff?  Beginning on June 25, you can sign up online by clicking the link above. Registration gets you the link to the weekly bingo board, which you can download and/or print.

Need help registering? Call or ask a librarian!

Participation

Each weekly board will have squares for reading (you just need to track your minutes each day you read,) and squares for other activities for you to enjoy! When you have gotten at least one bingo on your board, fill out the weekly check-in form at the link above.

 

Each Friday, July 2 through August 13, a new check in form will be available beginning at 9 AM for recording that week’s Bingos. This will also enter you in our weekly drawings and give you access to the next Bingo board for the following week.  If you would rather check-in with a librarian, just call or stop by.

**Remember that books, audio books, playaways, ebooks, and graphic novels all count for reading. Read or have someone read to you; anything YOU enjoy.

Once you have gotten a bingo, you can continue completing squares if there is still time left in a week before you get your next Bingo form.

Prizes

Kids:  Registration as well as each check-in gives you an entry into the weekly raffles for prize packs.

Each week, the ten readers entering K-5 with the most minutes read will get a special shout-out on our Facebook page. The top five get to recommend a book!

Kids and Teens who check-in with a completed bingo five times before August 18 will earn a book based the preferences chosen during registration.

 

Adults: Each adult who completes a bingo can enter weekly drawings for gift certificates to Brighton Restaurants.
