Summer Reading

Welcome to our Summer Reading Pages.  Every year, Meade Public Library sponsors the Summer Reading Program.  The program is free.  It lasts five 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, our theme is “Build a Better World.”  The 2017 program will run from June 5 to July 6 — five weeks.  Even though you can check out books ahead of time, you cannot get Summer Reading credit for them until June 5.  The program ends on July 6 at closing time (7 p.m.).

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.
