Photo of MPL Summer Reading passport

It's our favorite time of year: SUMMER READING! This summer’s theme is Passport to…., and we're taking intrepid readers on a trip around the world from June 17 to July 30. We'll visit six countries over the course of six weeks -- Australia, Egypt, France, Iceland, Japan, and Peru -- and each week, we'll have activity packs for each country. Pack your bags and let's get going!

To kick things off, we've created a Passport Office in the library, where you can get your photo taken and receive your official Summer Reading passport. To start reading, register here, and check out all the fantastic prizes here.
