Summer Reading at Walkertown Branch Library


It's official: Summer Is Here!

With the summer solstice on June 20th, there's no denying that summer is really here. Although our summer reading is going to look different this year, we encourage you to join us as we Imagine Our Story in a variety of ways.


Stay on Track with Reading Logs

As part of our annual summer reading program, the Friends of the Walkertown Library have kindly sponsored prizes for our end-of-summer drawing.

To be entered in the drawing, you may register for our virtual reading logs at this website or pick up a packet from the library that includes a fun activity you can do at home, more information and resources, and the traditional paper summer reading logs.


Every completed reading log is one entry into the drawing, so the more you read, the more chances you get.


Looking for themed inspiration? Look no further.

If you're looking for inspiration on what to read next, try our reading lists, curated each year specifically for summer reading by our staff. You can contact your local branch for printed versions of these lists or print your own from home using these links.

You can request the books using our catalog for physical books by following these instructions or by using our digital library on your mobile device or tablet by following these instructions.

If you know you want something new to read, but would rather library staff at Walkertown Branch Library make a selection for you, we are thrilled to offer a grab bag service. You can find more information about our grab bags at this story for kids or this story for adults. If you would rather jump right in and request a grab bag, you can click the following icons:
