Virtual Summer Reading Program 2020


Programs begin June 27th and run through August 15th

Join in the fun this summer as we guide you on a virtual journey designed to encourage you to Imagine Your Story with a celebration of fairy tales, folklore, mythology and sharing your own unique story and voice. Our varied and fun interpretations of the theme range from exploring the classics, Time Travel, Dungeons and Dragons, a Trip Down the Rabbit Hole and more! This year, we are adding three new programming levels: T(w)een, Teen and Adult, so programming covers all ages, from 0 on up!

Participants earn points for reading and will receive prizes upon completion of the program. Register online through ReadSquared.

The program kicks off Saturday, June 27th with Dragons: Return of the Ice Sorceress, a special county wide virtual program with Science Tellers. Library programs run Monday through Thursday, with a few added special events scattered throughout. Then, we invite you to join in the fun of our Summer Reading Finale Parking Lot Car Parade on August 15th at 10 AM. It’s a celebration of you and your reading achievements! Drive through, pick up your prize and for added fun: Can you guess which library staff members are dressed as literary characters?

But wait, it gets better! Ulster County Libraries are working together and partnering with Mohonk Preserve, Woodland Playhouse, the Ashokan Center, Opus40 and DRAW Kingston on county wide activities for children! Families can also view wonderfully exciting shows with PageTurners Adventures and ScienceTellers for several weeks online after they premiere!

Participating children can have fun filling out BINGO cards with a variety of reading, art, STEM, Nature, and Museum activities. Visit for more information and to download your bingo card. If you are unable to download, please visit the library during our curbside service hours to pick one up.
