Summer is just around the corner, and we’re going to spend it celebrating kindness. Mid-Continent Public Library’s Summer Library Program begins June 1 and will run until August 24. The Summer Library Program encourages families to spend at least 20 minutes a day reading or engaging with literacy. Readers will log each day that they read to receive a daily reading badge. When readers aged 0-19 complete 20, 40, and 60 days of reading, they will earn a prize book from their local branch. Those readers who are registered in Beanstack and log 60 or more days will also be entered to win a Grand Prize. MCPL branches will award a Grand Prize in each of three age categories: 0-5 years, 6-12 years, and 13-19 years. Adults who participate and log 60 days of reading will earn a special reward as well!
