Shreve Memorial LIbrary System's Summer Reading Program 2020

Imagine Your Story This Summer

By by Mimi Rankin Webb - Macaroni Kid Shreveport-Bossier Moms In the Know Publisher May 26, 2020

The Shreve Memorial Library System invites readers of all ages to imagine their own story this summer. This annual Summer Reading Program will encourage everybody to use their imaginations, promoting reading fantastical stories, fairy tales, and magical adventures to help immerse yourselves in wonder. This Summer Reading Program will begin June 1 and run through July 31, 2020, with registration beginning Tuesday, May 26.

The “Imagine Your Story” Summer Reading Program is for people of ALL ages, both young and old alike.  Patrons can get started and participate by logging books online and following @shrevememorial on social media. 

Children ages birth to 10 are encouraged to read at least five books over the summer, while teens age 11 to 17 are asked to read at least three. Adults are challenged to read at least two books (of their own, not just to your toddler's at bedtime!) 

As patrons log books online, they will receive digital badges for every book that they read. Kids who complete the 2020 Summer Reading Program adventure requirement of reading five books will be rewarded with a free book. Teens and adults who complete their reading challenge will receive book bucks for redemption.


Registration for the Summer Reading Program begins Tuesday, May 26, and can be completed online through the library’s Beanstack site HERE. Registered participants can start logging books as early as June 1. The deadline for completion of the overall Summer Reading Program is Friday, July 31. There is no cost to participate in the “Imagine Your Story” Summer Reading Program (FREE!!!)

All summer long, Shreve Memorial Library will provide virtual programming full of magic, mystery, fantasy, and fun in conjunction with the “Imagine Your Story” Summer Reading Program. The "Sciencetellers" will provide a virtual performance of “Dragons: The Return of the Ice Sorceress,” while Professor Universe explores space and fantasy with the “Magic of the Universe” featuring Merlin the Magician who uses gravity to do magic, a magical unicorn that travels at the speed of light, and a dragon with a broken wing. Conduct amazing science experiments at home with DoDads Lab and go on adventure quests with Page Turner Adventures each week. Programs also include video performances from singer/songwriter Brian Sivils, musician Will Parker, the Kabuki Dancers, magician DAT Does the Trick, and Little You Yoga. All performances will be made available through the Shreve Memorial Library Facebook page and website.
