Oakland Public Library Summer Reading Program

OPL celebrates summer with programs and prizes for all ages!

July 1-31, 2022 | August 1-6, 2022

All Ages


Starting May 28, people of all ages can register to participate in Oakland Public Library's annual summer programs.

With Kids Summer Reading, kids (0-14) who complete 20 days of reading during the summer can choose a free prize book and are eligible to win other prizes (including free admission for 2 adults and 2 children plus free parking to Oakland Zoo). Prize books (courtesy of the Kenneth Rainin Foundation) will be distributed beginning June 18, 2022.  The Grand Prize raffle winners will be drawn Friday, August 12, 2022.

In the Teen Summer Program, teens (12-17) can win prizes for doing what they already love to do: reading, writing online reviews, playing games, hanging out with friends, attending library programs, volunteering, and more. Grand prizes for teens include a Nintendo Switch Lite, a Chromebook, an electric guitar, Bose earbuds, and gift cards.

The Adult Summer Program offers adults (18+) chances to win a prize, including gift cards or vouchers to local restaurants and venues, for reviewing books and movies or logging activities. Adult Summer prizes are offered to participants 18 and over. Grand prize winners will be announced after August 6.
