Readers of all ages are invited to spend their summer scoring big with the Santa Clarita Public Library’s Summer Reading 2016 “Read for the Win,” from June 13 to July 30, 2016. Online registration is free, beginning on Monday, June 13 at the Summer Reading website: SCVSummerReading.com.

The Read for the Win program, presented in partnership with the Friends of Santa Clarita Public Library, encourages residents of all ages to celebrate sports and achievement with a variety of summer programming available at the Canyon Country, Valencia and Old Town Newhall library branches, including specially themed story times, sport-themed DIY crafts, dance and fitness classes, gaming and comic book themed workshops, family-friendly events, musical performances and more.

After registering online on the Summer Reading website or at one of the library branches, participants can set missions to read books or complete gaming challenges. Participants will use the Summer Reading website to track their progress online or to share book reviews. Each registered player will be able to earn “digital badges” and win prizes and rewards.

To accommodate the many families that participate in Summer Reading, some events will be held off-site. These events are free and include:

Magic Show: Abbit the Average: June 17 from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at The Village on Valle del Oro, located at 23700 Valle Del Oro in Newhall

Returning this year, readers can also join the Five Book Summer Challenge, encouraging children to read five items this summer. Upon completing the challenge, children will receive a “digital badge” and a free book. Adults who read and log five books will be automatically entered into a drawing for prizes.

The program will conclude with a free Field Day Finale on Saturday, July 30 from 9:00 a.m. – noon at Newhall Park, located at 24923 Newhall Avenue. The event will feature fun and games and plenty of entertainment including a live performance from Twinkle Time at 10:30 a.m.
