Summer Reading

May 24 - August 6, 2021

Our Summer Reading Program

has begun!

We have two programs again this year, one for children ages 0 to 12, and one for teens/adults ages 13 and up.

Children can earn tickets to enter drawings for fun prizes, including treats from local restaurants, gift cards, and toys. They can also win a free book once they've read 7 hours.

Teens can earn tickets to enter drawings for gift cards and coloring book/colored pencil sets.


Register or sign in to Beanstack using the button below. If you prefer paper logs, they are available in the Children's area and in the Library lobby.









1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

This is a year-round reading program designed to help caregivers prepare their children for school. Research has shown that children get ready to read years before they begin their formal education. An excellent way to get your child ready to learn is to read to them.

Children who have not yet entered kindergarten can participate in this FREE program.

Booklists for Children/Caregivers about Race, Social Justice, and Activism

Booklist for Early Readers

Booklist for Middle Graders

Children's books can help start a difficult conversation, such as race, social justice and injustice, power in institutions, and activism. The lists above include informative, thought-provoking, and empathy-building books for early readers and middle graders. Each title has a link to a Goodreads site for more information. The tables show how many copies the Cloquet Public Library and the Arrowhead Library System own.

We hope you can use the Libraries' resources as tools to continue to learn together and talk with your child(ren).
