The theme for teens this summer is “Get in the game. Read.”
Teens and adults, sign up for our summer reading program, and get prizes throughout the summer for reading. To get started, simply pick up a log at the library. You’ll get prizes along the way and might even win one of our grand prizes. Teen grand prizes are a Kindle Fire, tickets to Knott’s Berry Farm, and tickets to Six Flags. The adult grand prize is a Kindle Fire. Our summer reading program won’t last forever, so pick up a log today!
The theme for adults this summer is “Exercise your mind. Read!”

Mark your calendars! The children’s summer reading program kickoff will be on Saturday, June 4, from 10:00 a.m. to noon. Come join us for games, crafts, a petting zoo, and fun. And, of course, this will be the first chance for your little readers to pick up their reading logs and start reading.
We will have a petting zoo at this year’s kickoff. Yay!
Also during the summer we will have children’s afternoon clubs and special performances featuring magicians, musicians, balloon twisting, animals, and more for the whole family. Stop by to pick up a monthly calendar to stay updated on all that’s happening this summer at the library.
Parents, have you heard of Read to Me A-Z? Read to Me A-Z is a reading program for children ages zero to six. Read a picture book to your child for every letter of the alphabet according to the first letter of the author’s last name (you can read any book for letters Q and X). When you have finished reading through the alphabet, your child will get a small prize, and you will be entered into a drawing for four Knott’s Berry Farm tickets.
Read to Me A-Z reading logs are available for pick up in the children’s room. The program will end on February 29, so pick up your log soon!
In-N-Out is once again up to their wonderful shenanigans: they’re rewarding teens and kids for reading. Read on for program details.
October 1-November 14
Beginning October 1, pick up a Teen Top Ten Nominations list and rating sheet in the teen area. Read one book on the list, and rate it. Turn in your rating sheet to the reference desk to receive your In-N-Out certificate, good for a free hamburger or cheeseburger from the makers of the best burgers in the universe. Each teen can receive only one In-N-Out certificate. Each teen will also be entered in a drawing to win two tickets to Knott’s Berry Farm.
Children (Ages 4-12)
October 3-November 14
Beginning October 3, pick up a reading log in the children’s room. For every five books read, receive an In-N-Out certificate, good for a free hamburger or cheeseburger from the makers of the best burgers in the universe. Each child can receive up to three certificates. Children who are unable to read by themselves may have a parent read to them.
At 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16th, the Buena Park Library will celebrate the Day of the Child/Day of the Book, El Día de los Niños/El Diá de los Libros with a special presentation by Birdie Mendoza of Birdie’s Playhouse. Join Birdie as she uses puppets, ribbon streamers, and music with a tropical Latin twist to entertain and educate children about wildlife and the importance of reading. There will be a special drawing for four Knott’s Berry Farm tickets at the close of the show.
