WILLIAMSBURG — The Summer Reading Program at the Williamsburg Regional Library (WRL) is back this year with a theme of, Tails and Tales. 

The Summer Reading Program is for all ages living in Williamsburg, James City County, or York County, and encourages family members to read throughout the summer and log their hours to receive reading recommendations, take part in fun virtual activities, and win raffle prizes. 

From June 1 to August 31, kids, teens and adults are encouraged to track the books they’ve read and earn online badges by using Beanstack, an online summer reading tool.

This year’s Adult Summer Reading will take place in three separate sessions: June 1-June 30, July 1–July 31 and August 1–August 31. Adult participants must read and log four books and complete an additional challenge to win their choice of prizes from local businesses. 

Those in the younger program (Birth – 5th grade) can log 40 books between June 1 and August 31 to earn a special gold library card and card holder. Those in the older program (6th – 12th grade) can log 20 hours of reading between those dates to earn a Barnes & Noble gift card.
