Rock your Summer Reading Program

Music Compound is committed to educating all year long, especially during the summer break.  In addition to hosting an in-person Summer Camp, Music Compound has created another way to inspire summer learning.  The Rock Your Summer Reading initiative kicks off on June 1st. Area youth will have an opportunity to receive prizes for every 5 books they read. Music Compound has partnered with area businesses to provide special treats, one of kind experiences, and cool items as prizes. The goal is to inspire children to read and drive people back into area businesses. “It’s a win-win for everyone”. Stated Jenny Townsend, owner of Music Compound. A grand prize drawing will be offered for individuals that read 50+ books from June 1st thru August 31st.

“My children really enjoyed your reading program this summer. Instead of asking for their tablets they were reading and asking to visit the library often. Thank you for doing this. I hope you have it again next year.”

Program dates: June 1st through August 31st. 

Each participant can download a reader passport by visiting Most prizes are available without a coupon. This program is based on an honor system.

Each participant is required to complete the book submission form in order to be entered into the Grand Prize drawing. Our team requests you complete the form after each book for our prize partners.

The Grand Prize is a party for up to 20 people at Music Compound’s venue known as Studio 32. Pizza (Solarano’s Pizza), SRQ PhotoBooth, bounce house donated by Let’s Jump Rentals and sweet treats donated by Crumbl Cookie are included, a $2,000 value.  After reading your 50th book, drop off your completed passport at Music Compound to be entered to win the Grand Prize. The winner will be announced in September 8th.
