Virtual Summer Reading Program

The summer reading program is free and is open to all Ridgefield Park children - infant to 6th grade. 

Registration begins on June 28.

Kids, get ready for another fun and rewarding Summer Reading Program. This year we celebrate animal stories with the theme Tales & Tails - an exploration of awesome wildlife and amazing folktales. We’re bringing you all our programs, classes and events online or outside in our beautiful backyard.

Here’s what to do:

  • Register for your free online account through our Readsquared link.  You will need a Ridgefield Park Public library card to register for events and to be eligible for prizes.  Don’t have a Ridgefield Park Public library card, click here to register for your free card?

  • There are two programs for kids: 

    • Our first program is for children up to the age of 6 or entering kindergarten in September.

    • Our second program is for children entering first grade – 6th grade.

  • Come to the library to pick up your free Summer Reading kit.  Kits include a guided reading booklist for school age children, or a recommended booklist for our early learners, stickers, candy, list of prizes to strive for, and other fun things to get started in this month long program.

  • In addition, children will receive points for reading!  These points can be used for prizes!  In addition, every 200 minutes your child reads, give them a raffle ticket for our grand prize which will be selected at the end of our program, July 31st.  Five lucky kids will receive a $25 Target or Amazon gift card.
