Summer is officially here!

While summer looks a little different at the library this year, we are still excited to offer families some fun activities to do at home! We have created several unique resources to keep kids reading, learning, and having fun this summer! Check these out:

  • Virtual story times with activity kits are available on our website! Watch a new story time each week and print off the accompanying activity packet! Or you can stop by any MRCPL location to pick up a packet and then watch the story time at home. A new story time will post every Tuesday morning throughout the summer!

  • Summer Kid's Kits with activity sheets and a craft are available for pick up at all MRCPL locations! Stop by the Children's Department at Main or any of the branches and ask for the latest kit, or call and request one for curbside pick-up. We chose themes like pets, bugs, and space, and made sure each packet has several different activities to complete. Check back each week for a new kit!

  • If you are looking for recommended reads, check out the Summer Reading Lists curated by our staff! With lists of books for kids first grade through high school, you will have lots of titles to choose from!

For even more activities to fill your summer, try a reading challenge at home! Scholastic offers a free printable reading BINGO sheet that will keep kids busy and having fun! Or try reading in 100 different places with The Measured Mom's reading challenge! And if you run out of books to read, pick a few (or all!) from one of ALSC's annual Summer Reading Lists!

Of course, we always have books available to check out, both physically and digitally! All MRCPL locations are open so you can come in and browse the books or if you prefer, place titles on hold to pick up. Keep watching our website for more information about this summer! Enjoy!
