Welcome to SUMMER READING

at the Ivoryton Library!

During the first week of Summer Reading, begin by registering at either Essex or Ivoryton Library, June 14th – August 20th.   While at the library you will receive your Summer Reading 2022 booklet and have the opportunity to select a book of your choice from our gently used book cart.  With the assistance of your parents or caregivers, you may choose to set a goal of reading a certain number of books or minutes per week.  
Read to meet your weekly goal and then check in weekly at either or both libraries to collect all 18 stamps! If you check in with Essex Library all 9 weeks, you will receive a coupon to Sweet P’s, and be entered to win a $25 gift card to Toys Ahoy! If you check in with Ivoryton Library all 9 weeks, you will receive a coupon to Scoops, and be entered to win a $25 gift card to Toys Ahoy! AND if you check in with BOTH libraries for all 9 weeks, you will be entered to win a $50 gift card to Toys Ahoy!  
Inside the booklet you will see our calendar of events for both libraries, by attending these programs your child will earn bonus entries for the raffle prizes!  We look forward to seeing you at both libraries this summer!
