Read Your Way to a Sundae

Summer Reading Program


How the Program Works

  1. Visit the register at any Malley's location and ask for your game card. Readers from infant to age 18 are eligible to participate.
  2. Start reading! When you've read for an hour, have a parent or guardian initial your game card.
  3. Bring your initialed game card to your favorite Malley's location for a validation sticker. Just show it to any team member in the store. Readers can get one validation sticker per store visit.


Mid-Point Prizes

After four hours of reading, participants earn one free 1.75 oz chocolate bar! Choose from Milk Chocolate Pretzel Crunch, Chocolate Crunch, Almond, CLE Bar or Dark Chocolate Pretzel Crunch.


Ice Cream Social

After eight hours of reading, participants earn an invitation to enjoy a free child's size sundae at our exclusive Ice Cream Social. A Malley's team member will provide the invitation to the participant once they've validated the eighth hour of reading. Readers can choose to attend one of three Ice Cream Social events. Additional details about each event are available on the invitation. They will be held on various days of the week, at different times and Malley's parlor locations to help accommodate our readers' busy schedules. Pick the social that works best for your family. Be sure to bring your invitation with you on the day of the event - it's your ticket to the party!


Grand Prize

Super readers who complete the bonus hours of reading earn up to two entries into our grand prize raffle. Each extra hour of reading is worth one raffle entry. One lucky winner will be welcomed into our Brook Park factory for a tour and treat bag. The winner will be drawn on Thursday, Aug. 8. They will be contacted directly and announced on Malley's social media. The tour will take place on a mutually agreed upon date/time during the week of Aug. 12.



Throughout the summer, we're hosting a sweet storytime at each of our locations. We will be reading Curious George Goes to a Chocolate Factory and Love Monster and the Last Chocolate. Of course, we’ll also be sampling some treats. Storytime attendees will each earn one sticker for their Read Your Way to a Sundae game board.

All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Seating will not be provided. Plan to bring something for your child to sit on, such as a beach towel or blanket.
