Step One: READ!

  • Each month, read a book that follows the theme. Stumped for an idea? Check out our suggested titles or ask for recommendations on our Facebook group.
  • Do you have a title in mind to fit the theme, but it’s not on the list? No problem! We want you to enjoy yourself while you explore genres and themes you might not normally pick. Happy reading and have fun! (All titles should be adult or YA titles, no juvenile books please.)

Step Two: VISIT!

  • Each month you read a book for the month’s theme, you may claim the reward for that month. You must visit the library by the 5th day of the following month to get your log stamped and claim your reward. One monthly reward per reader, while supplies last. 

Step Three: SHARE!

  • Connect with other readers by sharing what you're reading on social media! Join our Facebook group or tag SPL in your post. We love to see what others are reading!
  • Not on social media? Simply stop by the front desk. We'd love to hear what you are reading each month!

Get all 12 stamps?

After getting all 12 months stamped throughout the year, turn in your log by 8 p.m. on Monday, January 6 2025 to receive an extra year-end reward!
