The Ocean County Library invites children of all ages to participate in the summer reading program. The program is available on the Ocean County Library website and is located on the home page under the “Events and Calendar” tab. The library also provides paper calendars and information by the friendly children’s librarians.
The Toms River branch offers children certificates after they complete reading five books. For every five books the children read, they are eligible to receive a ticket for the raffle. The Toms River branch raffle gives the readers the opportunity to win various prizes.
This program is easy to participate in. Register on the Ocean County Library website under “Join our Summer Reading: Sign Up Here.” The registration requires creation of a username, completing a brief form, and answering questions. After registration, you can read any five books you want.
The best part of the program is that it is designed for all readers with three themes: “Fizz! Boom! Read!” is directed towards children; “Spark a Reaction” is directed towards teens; and “Literary Elements” is directed towards adults. Each theme also includes book reviews by other readers.
