Ready to enjoy the warm rays of the summer sun? Grab a book from the Fond du Lac Public Library as you soak up those rays and start earning prizes through FDLPL’s annual Summer Reading Program.

Starting June 1, the Fond du Lac Public Library will invite users of all ages to “Color Your World,” the theme of Summer Reading @ FDLPL 2021. Through Aug. 15, kids, teens, and adults may read their favorite books to earn prizes and have a little fun.

New for 2021 is an online logging option. Users can use the Fond du Lac Public Library’s online portal, Beanstack, to record their minutes of reading. A link to Beanstack will be available at starting June 1.

Prefer to record minutes on paper? Stop by the Fond du Lac Public Library starting June 1 to get a paper card to record your progress. 

Whether recording on paper or online, participation is easy, and earns participants instant rewards along the way as well as a chance at a grand prize at the end of the summer. All reading counts, and reading aloud counts for both the reader and the listener.

Be sure to keep logging those minutes all summer; if the community can reach 2 million minutes read, the Fond du Lac Public Library will unveil a special prize for the community in August.
