This summer, get your books out and get reading in this year’s Summer Reading Program. “Reading Colors Your World” is this year’s theme.

The broad theme this year provides a context for exploring humanity, nature, culture, and science, as well as developing programming that demonstrates how libraries and reading can expand your world through kindness, growth, and community.

We have all heard that reading throughout the summer break is beneficial for students. National research finds that students who participate in library summer reading programs scored higher on reading achievement tests at the beginning of the next school year than those who did not participate. Our mission at MCCS Libraries is to provide the resources and experiences to bridge this summer gap, while inspiring literacy and life-long learning.

In partnership with iREAD Summer Reading, local summer reading programs will include activities such as crafts, reading lists, incentives, and much more for everyone including children, teens, and adults.

Visit your local MCCS Library to learn more and sign up for this year’s summer reading program.
