With this year’s theme of “Build a
Better World” and a season filled with high-energy fun, entertainment is sure to
abound! This two month celebration
offers great books, fun prizes and exciting events for all ages, all for free.
How to Participate
Participation in this annual event is simple
for all ages. The youth program is divided into three age groups: birth through
pre-Kindergarten, children entering grades Kindergarten through 5th,
and young adults entering grades 6th - 12th. Starting
June 1, visit any MidPointe Library location or the Monroe Lending Library to pick up a reading log or start
tracking your reading electronically with Wandoo Reader (see below). Participants keep track of their reading at
home, then can come into the Library to reward their accomplishments and pick
up their prizes! The Program concludes on July 31 and grand prize
winners for each age level will be awarded at every location shortly
Adult Summer Reading Program
Summer fun isn’t just for the little ones!
Adults aged 18 and up can complete a bingo board full of reading and library
related activities between June 1 and July 31. Participants
have the opportunity to win multiple exciting prizes.
Special Summer Reading Events
Special programming and events are always an
exciting part of the MidPointe Summer Reading Program and this year is no
exception! Highlights include live animal programs, a “totally gross” magic
show, MadCap puppets, makerspaces and more!
