Summer


Dive into the Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading Challenge 2022! Sign up at the library or online to start the journey! 

Play the Summer Reading Challenge by logging your reading activity to earn points and prizes throughout the summer. Track your progress by downloading the READSquared app (available in the Google Play Store and the App Store) or signing up here

How does it work? Read 1000 minutes by the end of the summer to earn stickers, prizes & chances to win our Oceans of Possibilities Grand Prize!

Don’t forget! For every 200 minutes read, come to the Main Library Children’s Room or Huguenot Children’s Library to collect: 

  • A special sticker for your Oceans of Possibilities Gameboard 
  • A prize
  • A raffle ticket for a chance to win our Special End-of-Summer Grand Prize!

Completing the entire Gameboard increases your chances of winning our Grand Prize! So make sure to have a whale of a time reading over the summer!

Our Oceans of Possibilities Grand Prize Winners will be chosen on Monday, September 12th. To avoid any commotions in the ocean, any raffle tickets must be turned into the library before September 12th.

Check out our events and programs at the Main Library and at the Huguenot Children’s Library for more fin-tastic summer fun at the library – including our International Music and Dance series and Picnic Party in the Park. The world is your oyster at the New Rochelle Public Library!

And don’t forget, the entire family can get in on the Oceans of Possibilities summer reading fun! NRPL has unique reading challenges for Teens and Adults as well. 

When summer is here and school is no longer in session, that doesn’t mean you have to stop reading. The New Rochelle Public Library kicks off its Summer Reading program each June. Join libraries across New York State in the summer reading fun. Parents will like to take note of the additional special programs offered throughout the summer at the library. We encourage parents to become part of the reading program throughout the summer. Giving kids encouragement and access to books will help their reading achievement take flight.
