[ARCHIVED] Summer Reading 2020

Imagine Your Story

Dear Radford Public Library (RPL) Patrons,
Summer Reading 2020 will look different than years past due to COVID-19, but we’re still here to provide books, prizes, and activities to keep you active and reading all summer long!
Summer Reading 2020 opens on Monday June 8, 2020. Unfortunately, RPL is not able to host a festive Summer Reading gathering as we have in the past. However, RPL will be providing both an all-ages paper reading log as well as a new app, READsquared, to help you track your reading over the summer. We encourage you to come to RPL weekly and pick up an activity pack – items to take home and create - through our Grab & Go Hold service. We’ll have a variety of activity packs such as making bouncy balls, decorating fabric canvas bags, creating beaded jewelry and more! Be sure to keep reading and picking up books and more at the library this summer because we’ll also be giving away weekly prizes to a lucky few just for checking out books from RPL!
Turn in your June reading log by July 3 or earlier by dropping it in the RPL bookdrop and return to pick up your new July reading log. YOUR RETURNED READING LOGS WILL BE YOUR RAFFLE TICKETS FOR OUR BIG PRIZE AT THE END OF SUMMER READING! Readers who signed up with READsquared only will also be automatically entered into the drawings. RPL Summer Reading readers can participate either or both ways!
Please check out RPL’s website ( or find us on social media at Radford Public Library Facebook or Instagram to stay up to date on everything going on at the library this summer.
At RPL, library staff have been missing our patrons. We’re looking forward to reading with you this summer! Please keep your eyes peeled for more information to come, and please call us at 540 731-3621 to schedule a Grab & Go Hold pick-up today!
Sign up on READsquared at ( or by downloading the app in your device’s app store!
