2013 Summer Reading Programs
For Children | For Teens | For Adults
We have something for everyone. It all begins June 10th.
There will be activities for all ages this summer at MPL, your go-to resource for beach reads and summer programs!
Check back often – a complete schedule of all our activities is coming soon!
Dig Into Reading with this year's summer reading theme! Children who have not yet started first grade can sign up for the Read To Me Club, where parents keep a list of at least 20 books that they share with their child. Older students can participate in the Summer Reading Club, where the goal is to read at least 10 books throughout the summer. There will be activities for all ages, contests, and prizes.
The Allegheny County Library Association has created and implemented Questyinz, an interactive online game, that engages K-5 students in reading and exploring their own interests through quests created by librarians, teachers, and community partners. The program pushes students to venture beyond the library, using community and self-guided experiences to further explore personal interests, whether that means a trip to the zoo, Phipps or a local museum.

On June 10th, Monroeville Public Library will kick off its annual Teen Summer Reading (TSR) program. TSR is open to all students going into grades 6-12. Students read all summer to participate in a Chinese auction of prizes -- as well as getting the chance to attend a variety of summer activities, from movie marathons and writing workshops to book clubs and zombie fests. There are special weekly drawings for extra prizes, and every teen who reads at least 10 books or writes three book reviews will be eligible for a special gift card. We'll wrap up the summer with our annual ending program party.
Stop by the Welcome Desk to get your rating slips and program packet, or register online starting June 10!
