Dates and Information

How do I sign up for a Summer Reading Program? Visit the library and ask a librarian, send an email to Ms. Boo at bettielueh@wiltonlibrarynh.org or call the library at (603) 654-2581. 

When can I sign up for the program?  You can sign up beginning June 1 and until the end of July. 

When does the program start?  Everyone begins reading on the same date-  June 19. 

How do I keep track of what I read? 

  • 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten- You’ll have a separate reading log! 

  • Kids-  you’ll set a weekly goal for the amount of time you want to read each week. Every time you read for 15 minutes, you’ll  put a sticker on your log sheet. At the end of the week, check in with Ms. Boo about your progress.

  • Teens- you’ll have the option to do a bingo sheet with instructions, and check-ins with Ms. Boo. 

How does the raffle work? Every time you have a check in with Ms. Boo, you’ll get a ticket.  Write your name on the ticket, and select a bin to put it in ( on display in the children’s room).  At the end of the program, we’re going to have a raffle. Ask Ms. Boo if you have questions about the raffle. 

What is a “check-in”? That’s when you check in with Ms. Boo, tell her about your progress that week, and get a raffle ticket.  It can be over email, facebook, in person, or over the phone.  She might ask you questions like- how did the reading week go?  Did you meet your goal?  What did you read that you liked?  You can have one check-in a week for a total of 8 check-ins ( and 8 raffle tickets) .

Why should I keep track of the time I spend reading? We need to report those numbers to the state.  Plus- It’s amazing to see how many minutes you can spend reading in the summer!

There is a Facebook page for The Summer Reading Program? Yes. The Summer Reading Program Facebook page is a private page that only SRP participants, library staff and library trustees  are allowed to see.  Once you are signed up for the program, Ms. Boo will send you an invitation to join.

Do I have to have a Facebook account?  No, but it helps. We’ll be communicating through facebook (some) and hosting special events and videos there.

I don’t live in Wilton.  Can I still do the program?  If you have a family member with a Wilton library card, that member can sign you up.  If you don’t have a library card, but live in Wilton, get one!  If you don’t live in Wilton, our librarians can help you find the summer reading program in your town.  

When does the program end? The last check in  will be posted from August 8th through the 12th, and the raffle will be on the 19th.  

Do you have more questions about the Summer Reading Program? Send an email to Ms. Boo at bettielueh@wiltonlibrarynh.org or call the library at (603) 654-2581.
