2024 All Ages Summer Reading Challenge


This summer, the East Providence Public Library challenges you—kids, teens, AND adults, to read and earn points to win prizes! Books, graphic novels, audiobooks, and magazines all count toward your summer reading.

You can also attend library programs to earn points. For kids, we’ll have animals with Dave Marchetti and the RISPCA, magic shows, juggling and circus acts, painting, puppets, storytimes, and even an 80th birthday party for Smokey the Bear. Teens can be creative with crafts and see who will win a MarioKart tournament, and everyone can camp out on the library lawn, and enjoy our Wednesday night outdoor concerts.

It all starts on June 1st, when you can pick up a reading log at one of our three library locations: Weaver Library, Riverside Library, or Fuller Creative Learning Center.

For every 10 points you receive by reading or attending programs, you’ll earn a prize! Prizes include art supplies, free coffee, coupons for free books, free ice cream, a free personal-size pizza from SAX’s, and raffle tickets to win gift cards to local businesses and experiences such as SkyZone, Teddy’s Candy Bar, and East Providence Lanes!

Make sure to join us at our kickoff and finale block party events that bookmark the summer, starting with our Medieval Block Party on June 17th and ending with our Space Block Party on August 19th!
