The first 300 children to register will receive a free ticket to the Akron Zoo!

The first 200 to complete their Reading Record will receive an Epic yard sign!

The children’s department also offers fantastic programming all summer long!

For children, not only is reading over the summer fun, but it’s critical to their literacy achievement. Research shows that as much as three months of reading progress that a child gained during the previous school year can be lost over the summer if they do not continue reading. This loss is cumulative year after year. The North Canton Public Library offers fantastic resources and our popular summer reading programs to help encourage children to remain engaged in reading throughout the summer months.


TEEN SUMMER READING CLUB
Register for the teen summer reading club, and for every book you read, you’ll receive a scratch-off ticket for a chance to win gift cards, books and more!

The first 200 to register for the club at the library will receive a pair epic NCPL sunglasses.

Sign-ups will take place throughout the summer, but special incentives, including entry to win an Amazon gift card will be provided for those who sign-up at the library June 1-3.

You can register online if you’d like!


ADULT SUMMER READING CLUB
Register for our adult summer reading club to stay informed about library events and win Epic prizes just for reading books and attending programs!

The first 200 to register for the club at the library will receive an NCPL backpack.
