Metropolitan Library System’s

Summer Reading Program

What: The Metropolitan Library System has offered a Summer Reading program for over 80 years. In the beginning our focus was to encourage reading all summer long. Eighty years later, that mission has not changed. We believe reading is a fundamental skill and needed for success in life. Every year we provide goals for our customers and when they reach a goal, they earn incentives.

Who: All ages can participate. This summer reading program is for individuals, families and groups.
