Summer Reading helps kids keep their reading skills up while school’s out. This year’s Summer Reading theme at Eugene Public Library is “Dig Into Reading” – and all ages are welcome to join in the fun!
A full summer of free events includes hands-on arts and writing workshops, live music, author talks, storytelling, comedy, the annual Teddy Bear Picnic, and lots more.
Children, teens, and adults can visit any Eugene Public Library location – Downtown, Sheldon, or Bethel -- to sign up and pick up an events calendar.
At sign up, kids and teens each get a free book to keep, courtesy of the Friends of the Library. Each time they visit the Library, children can also enter a raffle for family passes to City of Eugene pools or the Museums of Springfield and Eugene (MUSE). Teens are also invited to write reviews at the Library website to enter a free raffle for gift cards.
Adults get a coupon for a free coffee from Novella Cafe or $1.00 off a purchase at Second Hand Prose Book Store, both located at the Downtown Library, plus a Friends of the Library tote bag and themed booklists. Adults can sign up online and enter a free raffle for gift cards to the stores of Unique Eugene by writing book reviews at the Library website.
