Summer Reading 2013

Prizes, Games, Shows, Free!
The fun begins June 1st!

Ages: Birth - Entering 4th Grade

Read anything you like! When you sign up, you will get a reading log. Write down the titles of all the books you read this summer on your reading log. Once your log is full, turn it in at any library in Daly City by August 2nd for a prize and a ticket to the V.I.P. party in August at your local branch. There are many ways to play! Choose the way that fits your family best:

  • Read 50 books over the summer OR
  • Listen to 50 books being read aloud OR
  • Read or listen to longer books in 30- minute sessions throughout the summer

In-Library brainteasers

Starting June 10th, each week a new puzzle game is provided at the Daly City library branches. Children who complete the week’s word scrambles, crosswords, etc. can turn in their worksheet at the desk to claim a prize. To keep the challenge fresh, please remember that puzzles are limited to one per person each week.                     

Weekly stamps

Have fun at the library this summer! Starting June 10th, a new stamp will be available in the library each week. Stamp the designated spot on your reading log when you visit your neighborhood branch. Collecting stamps from at least 5 different weeks throughout the summer will earn you a bonus prize!

Ages: Entering 5th - 12th Grades

Read anything you like! After reading 6 books, readers can turn in their reading log by August 2nd for a prize, a movie ticket, and a ticket for the V.I.P. party. For each book completed:

  • Quote a sentence that made you smile, laugh, or think
  • Circle the emoticon that reflects how you felt while reading that book
  • Write a sentence or two about what it was that made you respond that way

Round Two

Enthusiastic readers who want to read more by August 2nd can repeat the process. A second set of 6 responses earns an additional prize! Participants can continue reading for fun at this point, but cannot start a third booklet with us.



Read any 5 books and fill out your Menu of Books with a rating and mini-review. Turn in your Menu of Books at any Daly City library by August 2nd for a ticket to the Gala celebration!
