Welcome to Summer Reading!

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.
As a bonus this year, students entering grades 2-6 can report on books in person to a teen volunteer and earn tickets to enter in a weekly raffle. You will receive one ticket for each book you report on. You may report on up to 5 books per day. Each Monday morning we will pick a new winner. Winners will receive a $20 Barnes & Noble gift card.
Our Preschool and New Readers programs are NOT in READSquared but DO require registration either in-person, by phone (856-234-0333 x5), or online.
