Beginning June 17th, 2023

Patrons of all ages are invited to participate in the Summer Reading Program!  There's a program for everyone!


Are You Ready to Build a Daily Reading Habit?

It's no secret that the Summer Reading Program is one the highlights of the Robert R. Jones Library year.  So, how could it possibly get any bigger or better?  Here are a few things you should know:

​What's New in 2023?
The Robert R. Jones Public Library promotes reading and encourages creative exploration, active skill-building, critical things, while instilling a sense of community - all necessary to "build a daily reading habit," which is our ultimate goal!


In keeping with this year's goal, the Robert R. Jones Library has put a fun, engaging twist on our reading program.  This year's summer calendar of activities and events offer each attendee a chance to earn a badge for their participation!


Earn Badges Throughout the Summer!

The badge system is an educational approach to motivate children to learn with the goal of maximizing enjoyment and engagement through capturing the interest of learners and inspiring them to continue learning.

How Does My Learner Earn a Badge?

Every time a summer reading participate registers and attends a library hosted event, they will receive a badge rewarding them for their experience to commemorate what they learned.  Please note: Unregistered attendees are not eligible to receive a badge.  All events can be registered for in advance.

Why Offer Badges?
Young learners will feel good when they receive a badge.  That feeling comes from a sense of achievement.  In addition, this sense of achievement will motivate them further to work towards getting more badges and rewards.  The badges are designed to give young learners public recognition.  Learners will be able to collect and showcase their badges throughout the summer, earning public recognition and acknowledgement for their achievements helping engagement and motivation levels.  Plus, earning badges personalizes the learning experience, making programs more relevant to individual learners while elevating their engagement.
