Stop by the 1st Floor Circulation Desk to pick up your materials and start reading. Earn a great prize if you read during the summer at least 10 books and over! Final date to turn in book logs is Saturday, August 19th, the day of our Summer Reading Party! Through stories, you can enter a new world and connect with others in your school, in your family, and across the country who are also reading. And when someone asks you what you did with your summer, you can proudly show them your reading log and tell them all about the great stories you experienced and all the heroes you met.

LIBRARY POLICY ON UNATTENDED CHILDREN: The Summer Reading Program is not designed to be a drop off camp.

The Trenton Free Public Library is dedicated to providing a welcoming environment that encourages children to attend the Summer Reading Program. Library staff is available to assist and support children with their use of Library resources.

However, the Library is not responsible for children who are left unattended on Library premises. Unattended children are children of any age who are apparently unaccompanied by a parent, guardian, and/or responsible caregiver in the Library. Any child age six (6) or under left alone in the library will be considered at risk. Children must be twelve (12) or older to ‘supervise’ a child six (6) or under.
