Summer Reading Program

“Read for the Win with STEM”



Interested in learning more about how the world operates through science and technology experiments and experiences?   


Doyle Public Library is featuring many hands-on activities and events featuring fun and fabulous experiments and experiences.  The program begins June 8, 2015 and concludes with a picnic on August 3, 2016.


Starting with Level 1, log in for every time you read or are read to by someone else.  Once you finish each level bring your logbook in for your level prizes.  Summer Reading Program is offered for all readers from Pre-K to age 18.


Books can be read anywhere!  You may read any kind of book that you have checked out through the SHARE System.  There are log books for the entire reading program.  You can continue entering by accumulating reading points in your log book for a chance to win the grand prize which will be drawn at the picnic on August 3, 2016.


Reading Rewards

Each time you reach a Level (Levels 1-5), you’ll receive a prize from our “Reading Store” and win a chance with your name in the weekly prize drawing.

The statewide theme for the summer reading program is “Read for the Win” and our library is extending the fun to include Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Wednesday afternoons during the month of June and July there will be an event held from 1-2 PM. Please see the list below for all scheduled events:
