2015 Summer Reading Programs
For Children | For Teens | For Adults
We have something for everyone. It all begins June 9th.
There will be activities for all ages this summer at MPL, your go-to resource for beach reads and summer programs!
Check back often – a complete schedule of all our activities is coming soon!
Every Hero has a Story is the exciting theme of this summer's reading program. Children will be encouraged to discover the heroes all around them, from super heroes in books, movies and TV shows to ordinary people who do extraordinary things. They might even discover that they can be heroes, too!
Children who have not yet started first grade can sign-up for the Read-to-Me Club, where parents keep a list of at least 20 books they share with their child over the summer.
Children who are reading are encouraged to read-aloud the their parents. Older children who have completed 1st through 5th grade, can participate in the Summer Reading Club, where the goal is to read and report on at least 10 books throughout the summer. Studies have shown that reading over school vacation is the best way to avoid "the summer slide".
There are prizes for both groups, plus contests and activities. Registration begins Monday, June 8.
On June 8th, Monroeville Public Library will kick off its annual Teen Summer Reading (TSR) program. TSR is open to all students going into grades 6-12. Students read all summer and earn tickets for prizes and prize drawings -- as well as getting the chance to attend a variety of summer activities, from gaming programs and stargazing parties to robotic crafts and a mini comic-con. There are special weekly drawings for extra prizes, and every teen who reads at least five books or writes three book reviews will be eligible for a special gift card. We'll wrap up the summer with our annual ending program party.
Stop by the Welcome Desk to get your rating slips and program packet starting June 8th -- and win a prize just for registering!
