As we are faced with difficult times and uncertainty in the world around us, we can find comfort in books. Sign up for Sonoma County Library’s Summer Reading Program for exploration, learning, and fun—and a welcome escape.
Sonoma County Library challenges you to read and help us reach a county wide 2 million minute goal by August 8, that's a week from Saturday! As of July 29, Sonoma County has read 1,069,821 minutes. Sonoma County is over halfway there, so you can make a difference!
“We’re down to the wire here and every single minute counts,” said Kathy DeWeese, Youth Services Administrator at the Sonoma County Library. “Studies show that reading over the summer strengthens reading and math skills, and the program we’ve set up makes reading even more fun.”
eBooks, audiobooks, eAudiobooks, physical books, and even books read out loud by a loved one...all reading counts. Input the minutes for any reading you've done since June 1 and join the challenge! Plus, for every eight hours you read you'll get a free book to keep, when libraries reopen.
It’s easy to enroll in summer reading and start logging your reading minutes. Enroll yourself by following the easy prompts at sonomalibrary.beanstack.org, or call 707-308-3262 and library staff will get you started.
