Camden County Library Kicks Off 2020 Summer Reading program

(Voorhees, NJ) – The Camden County Library System is excited to announce the start of its 2020 summer reading program. Readers can log their summer reading minutes online to earn digital badges, as well as to be entered in weekly drawings for e-gift cards.

This year’s theme is “Imagine Your Story.” Families can sign up and add up to 12 readers by visiting read.camdencountylibrary.org. Participants are then encouraged to log their minutes at least once per week to be entered into that week’s drawing.

There are four programs: Early Readers, Elementary Readers, Middle & High School Readers, and Adult Readers. In all four programs, readers will reach milestones and earn digital badges by logging their number of minutes read.

“It is always important to keep our children and tudents reading throughout the summer, and it has never been easier thanks to the library’s robust catalog of online and electronic resources,” said Freeholder Melinda Kane, liaison to the Camden County Library System. “Reading is key to the growth and development of young minds, but the best part of the summer reading program is that it incorporates the entire family. Signing up and logging your minutes is simple and easy, and the library even has recommended reading lists for children of all ages to make finding your next favorite story as easy as possible.”

Recommended reading can be found by clicking here. Most titles can be borrowed as e-books or audiobooks with a library card.

Established in 1921, Camden County Library System seeks to meet the recreational, informational and educational needs of its customers with locations in Camden, Bellmawr, Gloucester Township, Haddon Township, Merchantville, Winslow Township and Voorhees Township.

The Library is governed and supported by the Camden County Board of Freeholders and the Camden County Library Commission.
