Summer reading starts June 22 this year and runs through August 10. Early registration will be available online beginning June 15.

The 2019 Summer Reading Program will celebrate all things astronomical! This year’s theme, A Universe of Stories, will include 8 weeks of all-ages reading challenges, space related events, author talks, new recurring summer programs, and lots of prizes along the way. The Library will kick-off Summer Reading with a registration party on Saturday, June 22 at 10AM. Join us for ice cream, live music, face painting, and space themed crafts and activities!

New to our Summer Reading Program this year is the ability to register you and your family online. We’re thrilled to reveal an online registration portal that will allow you to track your summer reading and follow your progress from your PC, laptop, or other mobile device.

PLDL’s Summer Reading Program encourages reading for all ages throughout the summer with prizes and incentives along the way. Prizes this year include a free book, a day pass to the Michigan Tech SDC, and a $5 certificate to the Downtown Houghton Farmer’s Market. This year, we’ll have additional prizes to raffle off to participants who finish the program at our end of Summer Reading party on August 10.

Registration is open at the library all summer long. Participants must complete their reading logs by 1pm on August 10 to be eligible for all prizes.
