Summer Library Program (SLP)

Tails & Tales: SLP 2021 Kids Poster *

For the safety of our community, patrons, and staff, summer 2021 at MCPL will look different this year: 

  • Our Summer Reading Club will be based on the Beanstack app. Download the app (or use the web version), create an account, and join the Summer Reading Club challenge! Both children and adults are welcome to participate, and children have the added incentive of earning free prize books in July and August!

  • Our popular grab and go activities will continue to be offered this summer. Children can create a colorful fish, a bug hotel, and a feathered friend. Take-home activities will be offered for adults and teens as well. Instructions, supplemental activities and most supplies will be provided; basic supplies like glue or scissors may be needed at home. 

  • To avoid large indoor gatherings, limited outdoor events will be held. MCPL locations that have green space and minimal traffic will offer outdoor story times, and our virtual story times will continue to be posted our story time webpage, YouTube and Facebook.

  • Our usual summer brochure is now an activity bookletInside, you will find a variety of fun, screen-free activities. You may pick one up at your local MCPL starting June 1.

  • We are always here to connect people to books, so contact us for a hand-picked stack of books or reading suggestions. You may also use our personalized reading suggestions form.
