2018 Summer Reading Program

Are you ready to read? Because at Moore Library, your summer reading pays off! We want to encourage our entire community to read, and read often. We've got lots of fun activities for kids, tweens, teens and adults this summer!

The summer reading club runs from June 4 to Aug. 4. That means reading logs must be turned in by closing on Saturday Aug. 4.

No tickets are required to attend any of the summer programs. All programs will be held in the Holland Meeting Room. The door will open 10 minutes before the program's start time. The door will remain open until the program begins. Space is limited.

Chapter Chums
The library does not want fines to keep children from reading this summer! Children are encouraged to clear their blocked cards and practice their reading skills with a teen mentor in our Chapter Chums program. Children up to age twelve can reduce their book fines by $3.00 for 15 minutes of reading. Chapter Chums are available to listen to children from 1-3 p.m. Monday through Friday during the months of June and July.  Interested children should report to the reference desk. Please note that this program applies only to book fines and not fines from lost or damaged materials. Children may read off their own fines, not those of other family members.

Teen Reading Program

See the teen events page for a full schedule of all our teen summer events. 

Starting June 4, come by the library and pick up a teen reading log. Then keep track of the amount of time you spend reading on your reading log. Once you've read 10 hours, bring your log to the Reference Desk to get a brand new book! For every 10 hours after that, you'll receive one entry in our drawing for an awesome prize. The more you read, the better your chance at a prize. All reading logs are due at the  Reference Desk by 4 p.m. Aug. 4.

We are looking for teens willing to extend a helping hand to young readers this summer. If you are a teen (ages 13-18), you are eligible to volunteer as a reading mentor by listening to young readers practicing their skills.

VolunTeens will also help keep the library neat, keep the YP FIC shelves organized, make book lists, and more!  We will also have Tech Teen photographers take pictures for MMPL. With this volunteer time, you can either work off your fines* (at a rate of $3 per 30 minutes) or gain community service credit for colleges — we will provide you with proof for your service.

Anyone interested in becoming a VolunTeen must come to a mandatory orientation.

Adult Reading Program & FAQ

Adult reading log

For every ten hours of reading you turn in, your name will be entered to win a Barnes & Noble gift card!

What is the purpose of the Summer Reading Program?

The goal is to maintain or improve reading skills and knowledge for all ages, particularly children. It is especially important for children to practice their reading skills when out of school for the summer break. If kids read and keep their mind active during the summer, they will be better prepared for school in the fall.


How do we start the reading program?

No registration or sign-up is required. Simply stop by and pick up a log in the library or print one from the library's website! Reading logs will be available starting June 4, the kick-off date for the Summer Reading Club 2017. All logs must be turned in by Aug. 4 by 4 p.m.

Do programs cost money?

No, all programs are free and no tickets or registration are required. To attend a program, just come to the library the day of the program. We will open the meeting room door about 10 minutes before the program begins. Please do not be late. After the program starts, no one will be admitted. Space is limited.What else do I need to know about attending children's programs? Parents of children age 6 and older are encouraged to browse the library or use the computer while their child is in the program. Due to space limitations, day care or camp groups are normally not allowed. We ask that people not come and go from the meeting room during a program, as it creates a distraction for others. Please remember to turn off or silence cell phones. No cameras or video cameras may be used during programs due to privacy issues.

Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)
Moore Memorial Public Library will make reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities interested in using the library and attending programs. Please give advance notice for special accommodations.
