Summer Reading

About Summer Reading

Children and teens who participate in summer library programs benefit from engaging activities and opportunities which promote literacy development and help counter the summer slide. Summer library programs for all ages enhance lifelong learning and provide meaningful, enjoyable experiences available to everyone in the community. The State Library is proud to support libraries in this endeavor.

Children’s Summer Reading 2024

Combat the summer slide with exciting weekly programs from your Monroe County Library System! This summer, Adventure Begins at Your Library with enriching events that enhance your child’s love of reading and learning.

  • Beginning June 17, 2024, visit your local branch for story times, crafts, play groups, and more!
  • You can also pick up a Reading Dragon Log to begin your adventure with dragon cards, reading, and games.

Find an event near you and register using the library’s online calendar.


Complete your summer reading log to receive special prizes.

  • Reading logs can be picked up at any library branch beginning.
  • Prize books will be available, made possible with the help of Directions Credit Union.
  • Showing your completed Reading Dragons log at Directions Credit Union, located at 15470 S. Telegraph Rd in Monroe, will result in a $5 deposit in your child’s savings account.

Special Thanks

We’d like to thank Directions Credit Union for their partnership and sponsorship of this year’s program.
