Summer Fun @ MPL

Our summer reading programs run June 25-September 6, and we have lots of options for all ages. You can read, report and repeat, all online! Download the free Beanstack app or head to our programs page for a link to our summer reading challenges. It’s easy to set up one summer reading account and do a whole family’s reporting!

Kids and teens can record their reading online and do fun activities with their families to earn badges and win prizes, including a super reader lawn sign, free pizza from Papa’s Pizza Mama’s Chicken, or gift cards, including a $100 grand prize, from fun local businesses! For teens, there’s also a $100 Amazon gift card grand prize!

Adults don’t have to let kids have all the fun – if they log their reading on Beanstack, people who complete our adult summer reading challenge will get a cool MPL camping mug, and can put in their ballots for a grand prize draw that’s pretty ‘cool’!

MPL is also joining in on Simcoe Reads – 7 libraries, 7 books, 1 winner! Our competitors are Barrie, Essa, Innisfil, New Tecumseth, Ramara, and Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Libraries, but we know we’ll come out ahead! The champions and books will be announced July 2 – watch for updates and join in on book discussions and author visits to show you’re #mplproud.

You can find great free on-demand activities and details on our online programs for all ages under the Programs tab. We hope to connect with you for an exciting summer!
