Readers Are Leaders

Read books, attend programs, share your progress, and win prizes during the Summer Reading program, June 1 through August 31. 
 
What traits are needed to be a good leader? How can you be a leader in your community, classroom, home, or on the playground? What are some of our community leaders’ favorite reads? Join your community in reading books, attending programs, and learning what it means to be a leader. 
 
Summer Reading is for everyone! No matter how young—or young at heart—you are, the Summer Reading program is for you! Tracking the number of books or minutes you read, writing reviews, and attending programs all count as progress towards summer success. 
 
Sign up for Summer Reading starting June 1 at jcls.beanstack.org, or visit your local branch for assistance.

Prefer to log your books manually? We’ve got you covered. Download reading logs below (good for all ages!), fill out the titles of books and/or the minutes you read, and return to your local branch by August 31!

Throughout the summer we’ll be talking to local community members about leadership and reading and posting the videos on our YouTube channel!
