Kids summer reading program


Summer is here, which means it’s time for the Atlantic City Free Public Library
Summer Reading Program!

From June 23rd to August 18th, children and teens from birth through age 18 can attend fun events and rack up points through the library’s summer games.


SIGN UP. You can sign up for our summer reading program any time on or after Tuesday, June 23rd. If you sign up at our kickoff party at 2 p.m. on June 23rd, you get a goody bag and a free book!

ATTEND PROGRAMS. The library has events throughout the summer. There’s something for everyone—crafts, shows, science projects, book clubs, gaming events, volunteering, and way more.

READ. Read everything! Read books, magazines, comics, graphic novels, and manga.


EARN POINTS. Everything you read and every program you attend earns you points that you save up all summer long.

PICK PRIZES. Starting in August, you’ll be able to use your points to buy prizes like earbud headphones, teddy bears, bags, and other goodies!

REPRESENT. If you are one of our top readers at the end of the summer, you’ll be rewarded with a prize package, a certificate, and special recognition!

Don’t miss out on the best game in town! We’ll see you at the library this summer.
