Teen Summer Program

Teens (grades 6-12)! Help us "Build a Better World"! We've planned a variety of summer activities for you this summer, including arts & crafts, movie nights, computer programming and more! (See below.)

Join our Summer Reading Club! Starting 5/30, teens may register at any MCPL location or online to receive a BINGO-style activity log to track their reading and acts of kindness over the summer. Completed logs may be returned to the library by 8/12 in exchange for a free book and other rewards!
