Summer Reading begins May 28, 2022.

Join us for our Epic Summer Kick-off Event
Saturday, May 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.


CHILDREN
Registration for Children’s Summer Reading is available at the Library only.

Earn TICKETS for every hour you read!

For children ages two through entering grade six: Receive an NCPL tote when you register. When you complete your Reading Record, receive an EPIC Summer Reader window cling!

You will earn a ticket for each hour read to enter and try to win prizes. Winners will be selected after July 30.

The first 300 children (ages two through entering grade six) to complete their reading record will receive a free ticket to the Akron Zoo!

Help the library reach its Children’s Community Reading Goal of 250,000 minutes.

When we reach our goal, the Friends of the Library, the Rotary Club of North Canton and Daystar Autosphere will donate a combined total of $1750 each to the North Canton Cares Pantry and the Stark County Pet Food Pantry!

That’s a total of $3500 to help our community! We’re counting on your help! We need to reach our community goal of 250,000 minutes of reading to make this happen!
