Summer Reading

Summer Reading - Not Just for Kids!

Don't forget - Summer Reading isn't just for kids!  Though MCPL has a very popular and excellent reading program for kids from birth to 12, we have opportunities for teens and adults as well.

DreamItTeens ages 13-20 are able to participate in our Dream It - Do It Summer Reading Program.  Teens can earn points by a combination of books read, programs attended, computer questions answered and/or book reviews written.  Ten points earn the choice of a paperback book starting July 1.  All entries will be saved for a grand prize drawing for one of two Kindle eBook readers later in August. Pick up a Teen Summer Reading Program Game Board at the Main Library, Ellettsville, or Bookmobile Information desks to learn more and get started!

Adults are also encouraged to participate in the Adult Summer Reading Program.  There are 6 reading ideas for inspiration and winners will be selected weekly.  Enter at the Main Library, Ellettsville Branch, Bookmobile and/or  online.

Dream Big: Read!

Dream Big Read - verticalOur Summer Reading Program has taken off like a rocket! Our theme this year is Dream Big: Read! -- a fun theme with many interpretations. Sometimes, you might want to read simply to escape into a dream world for a while. And, of course, your librarians will tell you that the ability to read gives you the ability to achieve your dreams, for learning to read enables you to read to learn. We are unabashed advocates of the notion that knowledge is power. Learning about something, learning how to do something can inspire and empower you to act, to do, to become!
