Summer Reading

Summer Reading Club for Kids

Summer is here– and that means it’s time to sign up for Perrot’s summer reading club for kids! You can participate (and win prizes for reading!) Wednesday, June 21st through Friday, August 4th. The Summer Reading theme for 2023 is FIND YOUR VOICE.

Our summer reading sign up is in-person only. Stop by the Youth Services Wing and sign up at the Summer Reading table! Once you’ve read two books, you get an echo microphone (while supplies last) or multi-color shuttle pen. After you’ve read your fourth book, you get to pick out a FREE BOOK! After you’ve read your sixth book, you get a certificate for a free ice cream sandwich at Cups n’ Cones Old Greenwich! 

Parents, your child who is not yet reading independently can also participate in Summer Reading! After you have read 10 books to your child, they earn a free book.

Summer Reading Prizes

Summer Reading Raffle
