Imagine Your Story: Join Us for This Year’s Summer Reading Program

June 1-July 31

It’s time for Grand County Library District’s annual Summer Reading Program! While it’s going to be a little different this year, we’re excited to again offer a fun way to keep students (and adults!) connected to reading throughout the summer months.

This year’s program theme is Imagine Your Story, focusing on fantasy, fairy tales, and folk stories. From June 1 through July 31, the community is invited to participate by reading, joining in on activities and programs, and exploring our digital resources. If you complete your program by the end of summer, you’ll earn some prizes and be entered to win some other fun stuff (adults can win a stand up paddle board? Yes, please!).

The Summer Reading Program is open to all ages, so don’t think you can’t participate if you’re not in school. And we believe it is not about pages read, but about interacting with literature, whether it’s reading, listening to an audiobook, or even being read to. For little ones, we encourage you to read every day; for those in kindergarten through 5th grade, read 20 minutes a day. For teens, you can set your own goal based on what you want to do. And for adults, complete the fun bingo game we have prepared. Use the links to download your reading log to print at home. You can also pick up a copy at any library branch.

To register, call or email your preferred library branch. They’ll give you all the details:

  • Fraser Valley Library: 970-726-5689 or fvlib@gcld.org
  • Granby Library: 970-887-2149 or granlib@gcld.org
  • Hot Sulphur Springs Library: 970-725-3942 or hsslib@gcld.org
  • Juniper Library in Grand Lake: 970-627-8353 or junilib@gcld.org
  • Kremmling Library: 970-724-9228 or kremlib@gcld.org

Due to the current closures of the library branches, many of our programs and events will be hosted online. Don’t worry, though; we have some fun outdoor field trips planned, too! Check out all the programs we have planned on our online Programs calendar.
