Program Overview

The 2022 Summer Reading Program will be June 1 - July 31. We are excited about this year's fully in-person program. The 2022 SRP theme is Oceans of Possibilities so we will be featuring a lot of ocean and sealife stories, crafts, and activities.


We will be using ReadSquared to manage participation again this year. With ReadSquared, you can log your reading, earn badges, be entered into prize drawings, play mini-games, and complete missions.


Register for the program and log your reading (starting June 1st) at KRUMLIBRARY.READSQUARED.COM


Summer Reading Program is open to all ages, birth to adult. Register for the program that fits your age group: Pre-K (0-5), Children (5-12), Teen (12-18), or Adult (18-19+). If you have a Super Reader (reads 2+ hours a day), please talk to a librarian about the Marlins program after they are registered in the Children or Teen Program.
