STARR: Stratford Public Library’s Teen-Adult Reading Rewards Program

Welcome to STARR, the Stratford Public Library's first annual summer reading program for adults and teens!

Why should kids have all the fun?

This program is open to all library members 13 and older.

It begins June 11 and runs to August 31. Each week will bring fun reading lists to pepper your summer with interesting stuff, as well as featured reading links and discussions on our STARR Facebook page.

How do I join?

Simply ask at a service desk for a teen or adult Reading Rewards card, then start reading!

Any Library books, ebooks or audiobooks count toward your reading total. Graphic novels count!.

When you’ve read a book, present your Rewards card to staff and we will stamp one umbrella for each book that you report reading.

When your Rewards card is full, put your name and contact on the back and drop it into our draw box, then start afresh with a new card!

And if you read one of the titles on the Evergreen™ Award Shortlist, it will net you two stamps on your card, plus a chance to vote for the winner during Ontario Public Library Week in October!

Why bother?

For the fun of reading! Not enough? How about a weekly draw for prizes? There will also be a grand prize draw at the end of the summer, for both a teen and an adult prize pack.

Get Social!

Share your finds with other readers by using the library’s catalogue, Bibliocommons. Follow the SPL_STARR account to get great recommendations! Rate your reads, make comments, create reading lists, or tag your books with the official Summer Reading tag, #starr2013. Use the hashtag on Twitter, too!

Join us on our STARR Facebook page to share your opinions and discuss your summer finds with other readers. You’ll find polls, fun links, and lots of book-talk all summer long.
