Summer reading club

With the statewide shutdown leaving so many kids and adults with extra time on their hands, the need for the Driftwood Public Library’s summer reading program is larger than ever before.

Library staff have been hard at work devising innovative and creative new ideas for Summer Reading Club 2020, which has the theme “Imagine Your Story.”

People of all ages are invited to take part by signing up and setting reading goals. Participants can then play a fun bingo game or track their reading to earn either a cool interactive t-shirt or, for adults, a printed tote bag. Everyone who signs up will be entered into drawings for grand prizes at the end of summer.

To sign up online, go to, fill out a form for each member of the family and set reading goals. Participants can then print out a bingo card or tracking sheet and begin a summer reading adventure.

For those who cannot access the website, library staff will also be handing out materials through the Taft High Meal Site Drive-up, The Art Packs program through the Lincoln City Cultural Center, and in the print editions of The News Guard and Oregon Coast TODAY.

If none of these options work, give the library a call and staff will get you signed up over the phone and mail you the materials you need.

The Summer Reading Club is sponsored by The Friends of Driftwood Library, The Driftwood Library Foundation and Lincoln County Library District. For more information, call 541-996-2277 from 10 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday or email
