Summer Reading

SUMMER READING PROGRAM - Imagine your story

Summer is an exciting time for kids, young adults, and families. There is no school, vacations, and many hours to spend having a great time. Discovering books and reading for pleasure helps students maintain strong reading skills.

Midland County Public Libraries offers the Summer Reading Program every summer: June 1 - July 31. Participants in the program can earn prizes for attending library programs and reading great books. Once they complete the program their name will go into a drawing to win a bike.
