Read Beyond The Beaten Path

Simi Valley Public Library is excited to bring you a summer full of activities, reading, and fun around the community! If you’re not familiar with our Summer Reading Program, this is a program that runs from June 4th to July 31st and is for all ages. You can expect performers and programs throughout the summer, with activities crafted for toddlers all the way up to adults. As you keep track of reading throughout the summer you’ll earn prizes and entry into drawings.

On June 4th we will begin our trek off the beaten path with our Kickoff Event, a morning full of activities alongside the Simi Valley Boys and Girls Club and Talewise, with hot dogs from the Simi Valley Kiwanis! Our program this year all follows this theme of Read Beyond The Beaten Path, so expect nature, exploration, and the outdoors along your journey through Summer Reading.

There are two different ways to record your reading through the summer! The first is to visit our Summer Reading website and sign up! You can have one account for the whole family and can swap between reader’s on the fly. This site lets you keep track of all of your reading and challenges during the summer. The other way to record your reading is with our camp log, a physical camp log that will allow you to keep track of everything without the need for a computer.

Not only is our summer reading Beyond the Beaten Path, but many of the programs are also beyond the library, sprinkled throughout various parks and locations across Simi Valley!
