Summer Reading

heroWelcome to our Summer Reading Pages.  Every year, Meade Public Library sponsors the Summer Reading Program.  The program last six weeks and provides reading and educational programs for people of all ages.  Our hope is that Summer Reading will help young children build language and reading skills, motivate teens to read and discuss literature, and encourage adults to experience the joy of reading.

Each year, we follow a theme.  This year, it is Super Heroes.
Children’s Program:  Every Hero Has a Story
Teen Program:  Unmask
Adult Program:  Escape the Ordinary

The following links will give you more information about this year’s Summer Reading Program at Meade Public Library.  We hope you’ll join us.
