Summer Reading Program

Summer reading is always important but is especially so during these difficult times. The Livermore Public Library’s Summer Reading Program keeps youth active and engaged in learning over the summer and can help them keep up their reading and math skills for the fall. 


Again this year, the library has created videos to promote the Summer Reading Program instead of our usual in-person visits to classrooms.  We would greatly appreciate it if you would send this video link to your classroom teachers and ask that they show the 3-minute video to their class.

Again this summer, The Livermore Public Library is offering an app-based reading tracking system (and paper gameboards for those that need them) and participants can earn badges and prizes.  The Summer Reading program is available for free to everyone, from babies to adults. The program officially begins on June 1 but people can register now for the game at This summer our Community Reading Goal is Three Million Minutes.  Students can track their time spent reading to contribute to the community goal.  Like we did last year, there will be a fun competition for "bragging rights" amongst the Middle Schools and High Schools.
