Kids don’t get to have all the fun!  Teen Summer Reading at the Kingston Library is open to those 13 to 18 years old.

We’ve got entertaining and engaging activities to keep you connected, learning, and reading over the summer. 

And prizes!  Everyone likes prizes.

This summer, make your reading count!
For every book logged, a $1 donation will be made to Hudson River Sloop Clearwater to support programs that inspire lifelong stewardship of the Hudson River.


We’ve made it easier than ever – no more paper to deal with.  Track your reading online or in the app with READSquared!

We’re giving away silly vintage reading pins!  Winners will be chosen at random from ReadSquared all summer long.
