                                                    Summer Reading 2021     


Tails and Tales Summer Reading 2021

It's hard to believe but summer reading is approaching! Join us at the Cornell Public Library, June 1st through August 13th for Summer Reading 2021! The theme this year for summer reading, is Tails and Tales.  We are going back to our original format and participants can pick up reading logs at the library. There will be three youth groups again:  Pre-K-6 year old’s, 7-9 year old’s and 10-14 year old’s.  As reading logs are turned in at the library, participants will put a sticker on our “reading wall’, for each book read. There will be several incentives throughout the summer as reading logs are turned in.

This year, participants will receive a gift card from Books a Million to use online or at the store in Eau Claire and readers can pick out their own books! In previous years we have had books at the library for participants to choose from and take home at the end of the program. The top reader in each age group will receive an additional reward!   

We will have an additional age group for 15 years of age and up, so adults can join in the reading challenge as well. Readers in this age group who turn in reading logs, will have their name put in a drawing for a gift card at Books a Million at the end of the summer.

Come join the fun!

We have lots of new book series for our young readers in several series including: The Last Kids on Earth, Dragon Masters, Diary of a Pug, Owl Diaries, Unicorn Diaries, According to Humphrey, Ranger in Time, Daisy Dreamer, Storm Runner, Solve Them Yourself, Puzzled Mystery Adventure Series and more! Stop in and check them out!
