Summer reading at Richmond Public Library this year is being offered entirely online.

A range of free programs and reading activities are available to kids, teens, adults and seniors. This year’s theme is “Explore our Universe.”

Register online starting tomorrow at 9 a.m. and record your reading progress weekly to earn virtual badges. Participants who complete all challenges will earn a medal at the end of the summer.

Teens can write and post book reviews on the blog, as well as participating in virtual Escape Rooms, Kahoot trivia challenges and more. One winner will be chosen to design the artwork for next year’s Teen Summer Reading Club.

Teens, adults and seniors are invited to join the second annual “One Book, Three Cities” community reading project, presented in partnership with the City of Richmond’s Sister City Advisory Committee. 

This year’s book choice is Dear Life, a collection of short stories by award-winning Canadian author Alice Munro. Starting June 29, connect with other readers from Xiamen and Qingdao, China on the discussion forum. After reading the book, play Dear Life Book Bingo for a chance to win a book prize or join the weekly Stories Together Apart book conversation online.

The library is offering other opportunities throughout the summer, including science and technology programs, book clubs and more. For more information, visit
