Are you ready to read your way to a better world? Children, teens and adults can have fun and earn rewards with the Summer Reading program at Fort Vancouver Regional Library District branches, bookmobiles and via the web at

The theme this year, “Build a Better World,” encourages participants of all age levels to read with fun prizes and activities at branches throughout the library district.

Summer Reading runs through Aug. 15. Signups and reading logs are available online through Participants can sign up in FVRL libraries or remotely on the website via personal computers, tablets or smartphones. There are no fees for participating in the library district’s activities, events or reading program rewards.

Summer Reading at FVRL is open to all, in four categories:

Young Kids (birth-5 years)

• Older Kids (6-11 years)

• Teens (12-18 years) 

• Adults (19 years and up)

This year’s program encourages participants to make reading a habit by doing it every day. Readers of all ages log each day that they read or attend a library program and earn a prize for 15, 30 and 45 days logged.

For finishing each level, youth participants can choose from several prizes, including books, water pouches, coloring journals, balls, four-colored pens and more. Each level completed also earns an entry in the district-wide grand prize drawing in each of the three youth age categories. Grand prize winners among the youth will receive a $200 Amazon gift card. Adults earn entries into weekly branch prize drawings for $25 Barnes & Noble gift cards, with a grand prize drawing of a two-night stay at Skamania Lodge.
