Summer Reading Challenge

Come explore “Oceans of Possibilities” with us! All ages are invited to read their way through June and July with the Lake Travis Community Library during our eight week Summer Reading Program!

We challenge you to read 20 minutes every day to reach a personal goal of 1,000 minutes from June 1st to July 31st. If our community collectively reads 100,000 minutes, the Friends of the Lake Travis Community Library will donate a total of $1,000 to our two local food banks, Lake Travis Crisis Ministries and Helping Hand Crisis Ministry of Spicewood.


1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Enjoy reading 1000 books together to help your little one prepare for Kindergarten! Children who are read to from birth have a larger vocabulary, a higher rate of academic success, and are more likely to become lifelong readers and learners. Reading together provides a great opportunity for bonding and will create lifelong memories for both of you. Log each book you and your newborn, infant, or toddler read together (yes, repeats count!) to earn badges to help you reach your goal.

*A reader under 5 years old must be registered to see this challenge in Beanstack.
