Kids: Set a Goal & Earn Prizes!

We’ve made Rockin’ Summer Reading flexible & fun, yet challenging for all reading abilities. Set your reading goals* & decide how you will earn points – it’s your choice: Books, Days or Minutes.

Earn 1 Point when you:

  • Read a Challenging Book = 1 Point
  • Read 30 Minutes = 1 Point
  • Read 1 Day (20 minutes or more) = 1 Point

The first 1,000 kids who read & record 3 Points may drop by the Library to claim their first prize: a Whistle Key Chain or Maraca!

*Zionsville Community School students who complete 50 points will earn a special ZCS Celebration! Drop by the Library to learn more.


We have oodles of fabulous Weekly Prizes to give away! Log your reading as you go and drop by the Library June 11 – July 28 to claim your tickets and enter the drawings of your choice.


Earn 50 reading points to receive an entry to the Grand Prize Drawing for a chance to win one of two prizes: a Ukelele or Toddler Rhythm Set, both with 3 Free Lessons from Make a Joyful Noise Studio included. Completed logs must be returned to the Library by July 28 to be included in the drawing.
