Douglas County Library System (Oregon)

Summer Reading Program

2015 Slogan

The Hero Within....

Visit any of the eleven Douglas County libraries throughout the summer to join in the Summer Reading Program. Participation is FREE and the fun lasts all summer long.

Here's how it works!

Every summer, the Douglas County Library System sponsors a Summer Reading Program to encourage children to read for fun. Children can sign up at any Douglas County library as soon as school gets out for the summer. When they sign up, they will receive a book bag with a reading log, stickers, and a bookmark.

Children (through age 12) will use the reading log to keep track of the minutes they have read. Toddlers can also participate by having parents or siblings read to them and keep track of minutes read.

Two free books and a chance to win a Kindle Fire will be given to each child during the Summer Reading Program.  At the Douglas County Library in Roseburg, children will receive a reward from the prize box on each visit if they have read at least 15 minutes.  Check your local branch library for their rewards.  

Don't forget to bring your reading log to the library!

Each library in Douglas County will also host free programs and art activities. A list of activities by library location. These programs will be presented by artists associated with Umpqua Valley Arts Association and other members of the community. The Summer Reading Program is supported by the Oregon State Library Ready to Read Grant, Douglas County Cultural Coalition, and Douglas County Friends of the Library groups.
