All About Summer Reading

Wacky Wednesdays


Children of all ages can sign up to track their reading and earn fun prizes like Make-Your-Own Comic Book kits, San Rafael Pacifics tickets, drawstring backpacks, and books!


How to Join

Visit the San Anselmo Library to register and pick up a reading log starting Wednesday, June 14. Everyone who signs up will be entered into our weekly raffle for a chance to win 4 tickets to a September SF Giants game.



Track your time. For every thirty minutes read, color in a building on your reading log. When you have colored in a whole town, it’s time to visit the library for your prize! Help us build our summer reading tower by adding 3 bricks to our LEGO tower each time you show us your reading log. Play the Summer Reading Game again and pick a prize from the Mystery Box!


Weekly Raffle

Answer the weekly trivia question or attend a library program to be entered into our raffle. Winners will be randomly selected each week to receive four tickets to an evening SF Giants game in September OR a certificate from a cool local business for free goodies.


Join us every Wednesday at
1pm in the Council Chambers

for these fantastic (and FREE!) performances. No registration required!

A very special thank you to the Friends of the San Anselmo Library for supporting

the Summer Reading Program year after year.
