Summer Reading Program 2019

Summer Reading Web Tracker - 29 days Left, 6,259 hours readWe challenge Onslow County Readers to race toward super speed as they log a combined total of 18,000 hours of reading this summer!

Fun Fact: According to NASA, the average speed of the International Space Station as it orbits the earth is 5 miles per second or 18,000 miles per hour.

This year, we've streamlined our Summer Reading Program to make it easy and convenient for you to track your whole family's progress!

Here's how it works:


  1. Register online - 1 account covers your whole family! 
  2. Enter your participating children and yourself into your respective programs (based on age/grade).
  3. Track your reading! You can log in at any time to enter how many minutes you've have read to your child, your child reads, or the what you read yourself!
  4. Enter to win prizes! As you log minutes/books you will be entered into a weekly prize drawing for your Summer Reading Group!  Prize winners are drawn weekly at every branch starting June 15. The more you read, the more chances you have to win!
  5. Attend programs and complete activities for secret codes to earn bonus points and badges!
  6. Receive a free book! Children and Teens earn a FREE book prize available at their home branch when they reach 500 points!
  7. Read all summer long to collect as many badges as you can!
  8. Enter into Grand Prize drawing. In August each branch will draw a winner for an Amazon Kindle Fire 7 for a teen and adult as a grand prize!
