Summer Reading

Elementary Schools' Summer Reading at the West Hartford Public Library: A Universe of Stories

universe of stories

This summer we are encouraging students to sign up for ReadSquared, our electronic summer reading platform:

Using ReadSquared, students can log in the books they read during the summer. It can be accessed on any computer or mobile device. Students can earn points by reading chapter books, picture books, eBooks or listening to audio books. They can also earn points playing games and completing missions. Families who wish to use paper logs may do so and bring these logs to their children’s new teacher in September.  

Students who reach our summer goal will receive a ticket for a book raffle that will be held at their neighborhood school. Students can register starting June 1st, and may begin logging books June 16th. 

Join us June 19th for our Summer Reading Kick off! Stop by any West Hartford Public Library children’s department or access our website for more information. We encourage children to come visit the library and have fun reading!
