Frequently Asked Questions
 What is the Summer Reading Game?

The SRG is an 8-week program beginning in June that encourages children and families to read over the summer!

Our Summer Reading Game is an 8 week program which starts in June every year.

This year’s theme is “Fizz, Boom, Read.” 

 How much does Summer Reading Cost?

Absolutely nothing! The Summer Reading Game is free to all Lewiston Public Library and Auburn Public Library card holders! Don’t have a card? It’s super easy to get one!

What will I be doing?

Children and families read for a minimum of 2 hours per week (at least 20 minuets a day) to earn weekly prizes. After children have met their goal for 6 weeks they win a large prize like our famous t-shirts!

In addition to the Summer Reading Game, we also offer exciting programs such as special performers, fun activities, and craft classes. To see what kinds of events and activities we’re holding this year check out our Calendar of Events.

We’ll Kick-Off the Summer Reading Game with a show by Wayne From Maine on Monday, June 23, at 2:00pm. Mad Science of Maine will be visiting on Monday, June 30 at 2:30pm and Wildlife Encounters will be visiting on Monday, July 7 at 11:00am.

If someone can’t read yet can they still participate?

Absolutely! You’re never to young to join Summer Reading! Children who can’t read independently can be read to by someone who can! Listening to stories and books counts just the same as reading independently.

I’m over 13, am I too old for Summer Reading?

Definitely not! There’s a Teen Summer Reading Game as well! And if you have assigned reading for school remember, that reading counts toward your summer reading goals here too!
