Summer Reading

Summer reading is back at East Brunswick Public Library! This year's theme is "Tails & Tales," and we have special challenges for all ages. By completing reading and learning challenges, you can win fun prizes. Sign up for summer reading today. 


The Summer Learning Program returns for children entering kindergarten through fifth grade.  Kids, you can earn 1 point for each day you read or each summer learning "mission" you complete; then you can exchange 10 points for a prize!  Earn up to four prizes this summer.  The program runs from June 20th through August 21st.

For pre-readers, we continue to offer our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten initiative, which runs year-round.

Stop by the Youth Services desk to learn about these fun incentive programs and pick up your brochures!

The following are the 2021 readig lists:



The Teen Summer Reading Challenge is open to students in grades 6 through 12. Come to the teen space or the youth services department starting on Sunday, June 20th to get signed up. We will create an account for you and give you your Summer Reading paper log! Use your sheet to track your reading.

Every book you finish counts as 1 point. For every point you earn, up to 10 points, you win one small prize! Use your challenge sheet for inspiration to find books to read. When you finish a book, come to the library to show us your challenge sheet so we can log your reading and you can claim your prize. At the end of the summer, your points become raffle contest entries and you could win the grand prize! The program runs until Saturday, August 21st.

Visit the teen desk or the youth services desk, call us at 732-390-6789, or email us at with any questions you have. Happy reading!


Kids aren't the only ones who can enjoy summer reading! By completing a mix of reading goals and service and community-oriented objectives, they will be entered into a drawing for prizes. 

There are also several special virtual programs planned for adults over the summer, including a Seinfeld Trivia night, cooking workshops, and online TED Talks Viewing and Discussion or in-person programs including a conert in July and August. You can view the full program calendar here.

Adults also have the option to sign up for summer reading by using the family option when they register their children! If you have questions on how family signups work, please contact the Youth Services department.
