Enjoy nonstop adventures this summer with Buckeye’s Summer Reading Program, “Tails and Tales,” which runs June 1 to Aug. 1 at the city’s Downtown and Coyote libraries.

Adults and children can read their way through nonstop action; earn points toward great prizes; and visit exciting destinations like middle earth, Oz and Hogwarts. The more they read, the more points they earn to win a free book or food rewards from local restaurants.

This year, thanks to the Friends of the Buckeye Public Library, free summer reading kits are available while supplies last. Just visit either library location or the Bookmobile and ask for one starting June 1. 

Each kit includes eight weeks of supplies for fun, STEAM-based activities; recommended reading lists; high-quality, engaging links and resources; and a book. Using the kits helps you earn additional points by submitting their projects to library@buckeyeaz.gov.

The city of Buckeye is encouraging readers to follow the Buckeye Public Library on Facebook for weekly posts and videos throughout the summer.

Log points on the Maricopa County Library District website maricopacountyreads.org.
