The MidPointe Library System's always popular Summer Reading Program kicks off Wednesday, June 1st. With this year's theme of "Get in the Game… Read!" and a season filled with high-energy fun, excitement is sure to abound! This two month celebration offers great books, fun prizes and exciting events for all ages, all for free.

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 Wednesday, June 1, visit any MidPointe Library location to pick up a reading log or go to to download your own at home. 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 Sunday, July 31st and grand prize winners for each age level will be awarded at every location shortly thereafter.

Summer fun isn't just for the little ones! Adults aged 18 and up can fill out a raffle ticket for every book they read between June 1st and July 31st. Audio books and ebooks count too! Participants will be entered to win a weekly prize drawing. Raffle tickets are available at every Library location and can be downloaded from as well. Print at home and bring the completed ticket in to any MidPointe location for your chance to win!

Exciting performers and programming are always a highlight to the Summer Reading Program and this year is no exception! With Olympic inspired challenges, makerspaces, yoga and Pilates classes, magicians, live animals, and puppet shows appearing at MidPointe locations this June and July, there is truly an event for everyone. For a complete listing of all Summer Reading Program events, visit's event page or pick up a programming calendar with your reading log.
