Online Summer Reading Program

Below you will find many stories, shows, and video directions to put together your craft items. Remember, when you use your Reader Zone app (Downloaded free from Google Play, App Store, or Amazon.com), you can mark on your “Activities” page that you’ve watched one of these videos. On the “Goals” page, you’ll keep a record of the minutes you read each day. As you read more, do these activities, and record your progress on Reader Zone, you’ll have a better chance to win prizes at the end of the summer. The grand prizes sponsored by the Northwest Kansas Library System are Amazon Fire Tablets and $20.00 Amazon gift certificates.
