Children's Summer Reading Game

Oceans of Possibility-Children's Summer Reading Game

Entering Pre-K - 5th grade
Registration starts June 13

This summer help create an underwater world of wonder! For each week completed, participants get a different sea creature to decorate. Once returned, we will hang the ocean creature creations in the Children’s Room for all to see. And don’t forget—there are prizes, too! Earn a prize each week you read at least 120 minutes.

Participate in the game either virtually or in person. To play virtually, register at pittsfordcommunitylibrary.beanstack.org. To play in person, pick up a registration packet at the library. The first turn-in day for prizes is June 27. Pick up prizes at the library each week, or once at the end.

Early Literacy Summer Game

Little Explorers - Early Literacy Summer Game

Babies & Toddlers: Ages 0 - 3

This fun ocean summer program is designed just for babies and toddlers ages 0 to 3. It runs from June 27 through August 12, and is designed to get them (and you) singing, laughing, and learning. Pick up a game board starting June 13 to join the fun. This summer program is NOT offered virtually.

1000 Books before Kindergarten

1000 books before kindergarten

PCL encourages families and caregivers to read 1000 books with their children before they enter kindergarten. Reading aloud to children from birth helps to strengthen language skills and build vocabulary – two important tools for learning to read.

  • It's easy to reach this important milestone:
    • 3 books a day for 1 year = 1095 books
    • 1 book a day for 3 years = 1095 books

Sign up for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten at the Pittsford Community Library Children’s Desk. You will receive a welcome bag and learn how to track books online with Beanstack, or on paper. Every 100 books read will earn you a sticker. Prizes will be awarded when 500 and 1000 books are read.

Beanstack and the 1000 Books incentives are available through the generosity of the Friends of the Pittsford Library.
