Summer Reading Program!

Click here to see a Calendar of Events at the Library!

The Reading Program begins with our kick off party Friday, June 15th 2018! We will have Pizza, Beverages, Games, Prizes, and you can register for the Summer Program!

Melvindale Public Library's summer reading program is back in full swing! Registration can be done any time during summer. Just keep in mind the sooner you start the more chances you have to win.

Do you want to win prizes this summer for reading? Well, you've come to the right place. This year's theme is Music. Libraries Rock so lets make this a fun program together!

how it works!

Every registered child will receive a Yellow Game Board to complete their reading and activities. Color in 1 box after reading for 20 minutes. When you reach the image on the board you will earn a prize and a chance to enter a raffle. After you complete the first Yellow Board you can get a second Board in Green.


The Green Board is the second round. When you get your Green Board you can read for 20 mins and fill in a square. Once you reach an image you can enter a raffle! The raffles will be drawn on August 6th! Once you complete this board you may ask to do another Green Board!
