2023 Summer Reading Challenge: All Together Now

Summer Reading Challenge

Children and teens are invited to participate in the Summer Reading Challenge: All Together Now at Chatham County Public Libraries branches from June 1 through July 31, 2023. The Summer Reading Challenge is designed to encourage kids to continue reading during the summer months and beat the summer slide.

Visit any of the following Chatham County Public Libraries branches to get started with the Summer Reading Challenge, sponsored by the Friends of the Chatham Community Library, is open to children and teens ages 2-18:

  • Chatham Community Library
  • Goldston Library
  • Wren Memorial Library

Readers participate by picking up a reading log at their local library branch and reading for 10 hours to earn a free book, up to three books per participant (while supplies last). All participants who read for at least 10 hours will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Gift Certificate to McIntyre’s Books.

Special events will be presented at Chatham County libraries throughout the summer, including a kickoff program at Chatham Community Library on June 1, at 6:00 p.m., with live music by Big Bang Boom. Other presenters include Mr. Scooter, the Story YELLER, the North Carolina Opera, BeWild Reptile Rescue, and more. For a complete list of summer events, visit the libraries’ online event calendar.
