Welcome to the Stratford Library Children’s Department.


  • How to print your summer list (and type in any last books for school)

    The summer reading program is ended, but you can still print out your list – and type in any books that you read for the next few weeks.

    There are no more prizes or crafts (our teen volunteers are just about done for the summer), but you can still type in your books as you read them. Congratulations on a great job this summer :)

    Yes, we are so sad that summer reading is drawing to a close. But we are happy about the amazing books you have read and shared with us!

    Here are the deadlines for summer reading :)

    - Spend all Library Loot (green book) no later than this Saturday

    - Log all books for summer reading no later than this Saturday

    - Return all prize tickets no later than this Saturday

    - Pick up all summer prizes (while supplies last) by August 20

    - Prize drawings will be announced no later than August 24. You do not need to be present to win (Drawings are not announced at the August 17 party – we are so busy being proud of you that day!).

    - Even though the summer reading program ends this Saturday, you may continue to type in books for your own enjoyment through the end of August. Please print out your list no later than the first week of September – the system closes and we are unable to access lists after that time.

    - Don’t forget Read Around Stratford, our school year summer reading club – which starts October 1. Read 1000 pages to qualify for a party in the spring.
