Summer Fun @ Your Library!
Our summer reading programs run June 13-September 4, and we have lots of options for all ages. You can read, report and repeat! Download the free Beanstack app for a link to our summer reading challenges. It’s easy to set up one summer reading account and do a whole family’s reporting!
Kids and teens can record their reading and do fun activities to earn badges and win prizes, including a super reader lawn sign, or gift cards, including a $100 grand prize, from fun local businesses! For teens, there’s also a $100 Amazon gift card grand prize!
The TD Summer Reading Club theme for ages 0-18 is Once Upon a Time: Myths and Legends, so we have lots to spark your imagination, from merpeople to valiant knights to ancient civilizations, including writing, art, and science programs for kids, and lots of ways for everyone to have fun!
You can start reporting on June 13, but we know you can’t party until school’s out, so on June 29, 1-4pm, join us for our Summer Reading Launch Party! There’ll be lots of great activities and you can register for summer reading. The coolest part will be free ice cream for SRP participants (or a small donation). MPL is hosting an ice cream truck, thanks in part to TD Bank!
Adults don’t have to let kids have all the fun – if they log their reading on Beanstack, people who participate in our adult summer reading challenge can put in their ballots for a grand prize draw!
MPL is also joining in on Simcoe Reads – 7 libraries, 7 books, 1 winner! Our competitors are Barrie, Bradford, Essa, Innisfil, New Tecumseth, and Ramara, but we know we’ll come out ahead! The champions and books will be announced July 4 – watch our website for updates and join in on our July 14 author visit – also announced July 4 – to show you’re #mplproud. The final debate happens September 17!
