Summer Reading Program — 2017

In an attempt to Go Green and Save the Trees,
the Pawtucket Children’s library will be reducing the amount of paper generally used during the summer reading program by offering the summer reading program online.

Summer Reading Program runs

  • Register and log your progress online.
  • Pick up your prizes and museum passes any time the library is open.
  • Read 12 hours to complete your summer contract.
  • Completer’s Raffle prizewinners will be drawn on Tuesday, August 15 and will be notified by phone. Child does NOT need to be present.
  • End of Summer Hawaiian party (8/21/2017) will also have a raffle that the child DOES need to be present to win.
