Participation is for Springfield residents only. Children and teens registered for summer reading will receive a voucher for a free ice cream from Scream Truck, redeemable on Saturday, July 10th between 11:00 AM and 12:30 PM when Scream Truck will be parked outside of the library.
To participate, you must register for summer reading and pick up your voucher from the library no later than Tuesday, July 6th (library closes at 5:00 PM).

Scream Truck, the first on-demand ice cream delivery service, was created by Eric Murphy, a long-time New Jersey resident and accomplished entrepreneur. To receive delivery from Scream Truck, customers sign up on Scream truck’s website. Customers receive a text when the truck is coming to their Springfield neighborhood and then simply “Reply Y” to the text to place a soft serve ice cream order online. Scream Truck prepares the order right in front of the customer’s house later that day. In addition to their soft serve ice cream and toppings, Scream Truck carries premium, non-dairy/vegan ice creams and all natural fresh fruit pops.
