Welcome to the Tacoma Public Library's
2013 Summer Reading Headquarters!

The Tacoma Public Library has three reading clubs this summer so that the entire family can join, read and have lots of fun.  Each club begins on Saturday, June 15 and ends on Saturday, August 10. The first day you can sign up and join the club is Saturday, June 1. You can join the club at your neighborhood library or online (see links below).

Each club has its own rules and prizes (and we have very exciting prizes for summer readers). Our libraries are filled with special programs and events including magic shows, puppets, music, family crafts, gaming, and lots more.

Two lucky readers who read and report on ten books will each win a new iPad! We have great weekly prizes, including tickets to the Washington State Fair and the Tacoma Rainiers.
