Summer Program 2024


Summer is the perfect time to try new things. 

Are you ready to take the Challenge?

For All Ages!

The Chilton Public Library Summer Reading Program tradition continues this summer! Read books and ebooks; listen to audiobooks; or (for our younger patrons) listen as someone reads to you. Then record everyday that you read in the Beanstack reading log (signup at  or pick up a paper log from the library) and earn badge buttons, book bags, and books!


Logging starts June 1. Registered after June 1?  You can backdate your reading log.

As always, the Summer Learning Program is available to readers of all ages – kids, teens and adults. The program is open to all, however, prizes must be picked up from the library.
