Summer Reading Program 2022

June 4 to July 23, 2022

Get ready to dive into Orange County Library System's annual Summer Reading Program, Oceans of Possibilities: An exploration of new depths, seven seas, and infinite stories. This year we’re bringing you greater flexibility. Programs, classes and events will be offered both in-person and online. Everyone can make a splash and enjoy all the library has to offer this summer.  

Here’s what to do: 

  • Find great books to read on our Summer Booklists for Early Learners, Kids and Teens. 

  • Read at least 20 minutes every day. 

  • Sign up for Beanstack and log your minutes online, or use the English, Haitian Creole, and Spanish paper reading tracker. Learn more about how to track your reading and earn a chance to win prizes here.

  • Pick up a take-home craft at your library branch.  

  • View the online calendar to register to upcoming programs and events.  

Sign up for an OCLS card or visit any of our Orange County Library locations to register for a library card in person.

*An Orange County Library regular, property owner or fee card in good standing is required to be eligible to win prizes. Reciprocal borrowers, OCLS staff, including board members and their families, are ineligible.
