Libraries’ Summer Reading Challenge Starts May 30th

Fort Bend County Libraries presents special reading challenges during the summer to encourage reading among children from birth and up, as well as teens and adults. “Oceans of Possibilities” is the theme for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge. Online registration for the 2022 Summer Reading Challenge, which takes place at all Fort Bend County Libraries (FBCL) locations, will begin on Monday, May 30th, and continue through August 31st. Library programs and activities for children begin during the week of June 6th, and continue through July 30th.

Children from infancy through school-age are invited to come to the library to read a lot of great books and join in some fun activities to kick off a great summer! Younger children will enjoy the “Summer Reading Challenge for Children,” while students in grades 6-8 can participate in activities for older kids in the “Middle School Summer Challenge.” Teens in high school can participate with adults in the “YA/Adult Summer Reading Challenge” to complete individual online challenges and win prizes.

There is no charge to join the Summer Reading Challenge, and it is open to everyone, regardless of the county of residence. Participants may register at any Fort Bend County library, or may register online by going to and clicking on the “SRC Sign-Up” image, which will become available on May 30th. When the online registration form has been completed, readers will then have their own online page on which to record their books and reading time.

Reading rewards can be redeemed beginning Monday, June 6th. The last day to pick up awards is August 31st. Prizes must be collected from the “primary library of use” that the reader indicated on the registration form.
