Summer Reading Program 2020

The La Vista Public Library’s Summer Reading Program will look a little different in 2020 because of the LV Summer Reading Program FBpandemic, but we’re excited to launch a virtual program that will begin June 3 and go until July 29.

The theme this year is Imagine Your Story and we’ll be using a free app called Reader Zone to log your reading experiences!

You can register your family and join our program in just a few easy steps and soon you’ll be working your way toward your summer reading goal!

Our readers this summer will be divided into four groups with varying goals:

  • Ages 0-6 – 150 books
  • Ages 7-11 – 1,500 minutes
  • Ages 12-17 – 2,600 minutes
  • Ages 18+ – 2,600 minutes

Four steps to getting started!

Step 1: Sign Up

  • Head to or search for the Reader Zone app in the Google or Apple stores.
  • Once on the site or in the app, click Sign up.
  • Create an account as a Reader, Parent, or Organizer.
  • If you are creating the account for your whole family (including yourself), you will choose Parent.
  • If you are creating the account for yourself (adult or teens), you will choose Reader.

Step 2: Adding Names

  • Once you have created your account, you can add your children’s names, which will create a place for their books (and yours!) to be logged separately.

Step 3: Joining our Program

  • In order to join the La Vista Public Library Summer Reading Program you will need to enter the following reading code: V436r

Logging Books

  • Click on Book Bank to add books being read
  • When you or your child are finished reading, select the book from the book bank and click Finish Book.
  • In order to add to your number of books read, go to main page where there is a box to “enter reading”. Click this and you can change the number to the total number of books you have read.
