The Summer reading program at the Princeton Public Library begins on Monday, June 12, 2023, for youth from pre-k to 8th grade. Parents can sign up kids for our Youth Summer Reading Challenge and log their reading time on the Reader Zone app (for Android, Apple, and Amazon devices) using our program code 49f89. Using the same app and program code, we also offer a Teen/Adult Summer Reading Challenge, which tracks number of books read.
