Summer Reading 2020

Welcome to our
Brand New Summer Reading Program!
Registration begins June 19.
The last day to record is August 30.

There are a lot of changes this summer, but Summer Reading is definitely on!

This year, the New Jersey State Library has provided READSquared to libraries to offer summer reading in this era of remote services and social distancing. The program involves tracking your reading online and of course, earning prizes!

You can sign up and record your progress at: moorestownlibrary.readsquared.com
or download the READSquared app

You can find the activities and track your progress on the READSquared website or REAdSquared app. Or, you can call to pick up an activity sheet and a set of books for completing it at the library, once the library re-opens. You will win prizes at the end of the program.

TN-5Teen Summer Reading

Teen Summer Reading is for students ages 12-18 (entering grades 7-12). You will read books of your choice and write book reviews on the READSquared website or READSquared app.  You’ll earn a cookie from the Pie Lady Cafe for reviewing your first 3 books. After that, you’ll earn a $5 Wawa gift card for reading 5 books and another $5 Wawa gift card for reading 10 books. Each book review is converted into a raffle ticket for a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card. So the more you read and review, the more chances you have to win the big prize.

Each week, a new Trivia Quiz will be posted under MISSIONS. If you answer all the questions correctly, you’ll get an extra ticket in the grand prize raffle.
