Spread the word! Summer Reading, prizes, fun events, and story times are happening at the Cannon Beach Library this summer. From June 17th through August 19th, we’re inviting Summer Readers from babies to young adults to “Find Your Voice!” Come explore how to wield the power of your “voice” – words, writing, art, music, and actions – to express yourself and help shape your world.

How to Participate:

  1. Starting June 17th, come to the library or sign up any time online. Pick up your summer reading bag, game board, and FREE BOOK.
  2. Mark ONE SPACE on the game board for each day you read. You choose what and how much to read (listening to eBooks or someone else read to you counts).
  3. For every seven spaces marked, bring your game board into the library and collect an awesome prize and a badge.
  4. It’s ok if you don’t have a game board by the start of Summer Reading. You can join in anytime and fill in spaces from previous day’s reading.
  5. Trade your game board in at the end for tickets to win one of three grand prizes!

Don’t live here? No problem – keep playing, email us your game board, and we’ll send you the prizes and put your name in for the grand prize drawing.


Kick-Off Celebration and Find Your Art! Saturday, June 17: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Refreshments and door prizes! Come pick up summer reading bags and a FREE BOOK. Make musical instruments with artist Miss Karen, who will help participants create and decorate tambourines and kazoos.

Find Your Music! Wednesday, July 19: 11a.m – 12 p.m. Children’s music program led by musician Gabrielle Macrae. Come sing, groove, and feel the vibes of exploring your voice through music.
