Summer Reading Rocks! A Program for Young Readers

If you're Pre-k through 8th grade, you can make your summer reading ROCK this year. Join our Summer Reading Rocks program and every book you finish from now until the end of August counts toward a coupon for purchases from Kids Books AND some COOL FREE STUFF. And when you sign up, you'll automatically be entered for chance to win a backpack filled with brand new school supplies! (Drawing will take place in August. More details to come.) Ask a staff member how to sign up, pick up your All Access Book Pass, and get to it! You'll be a rock star reader in no time.
