Summer Reading 2021

Welcome to  Summer Reading!

Registration begins June 18.
The last day to record and pick up prizes is August 28.

This year our Children’s and Teen Summer Reading is online using READSquared, an online reading program provided by the NJ State Library.  You can register  at: moorestownlibrary.readsquared.com  or download the READSquared app.  If you participated online last year, your login and password remain the same and you are automatically entered into the age appropriate Summer Reading program.
