Local library users know summertime is a fantastic time to visit the library! Experience all the fun as Morrisson-Reeves Library (MRL) kicks off its annual Summer Reading Program “All Together Now” on Saturday, June 3rd. Participants can pre-register online at MRLinfo.org or inside the library starting on May 23rd. On June 3rd, patrons can start tracking their reading and activities progress from their digital device, as well as earn badges and prizes, play fun games, and learn valuable tips. The program is free and open to the public. It runs through Saturday, July 29.
Fun summer adventures await you at Morrisson-Reeves Library! Your adventures begin June 3rd with a summer kick-off party that includes a giant, life-sized Madcap Puppet show! Join the Summer Reading and Adventure Program, where you can earn prizes just for reading books. And MRL has free programs for all ages, including arts and crafts, story times, author visits, live music, even ballroom dance lessons and Silly Safaris closes out the summer program with a live animal show on July 29th.
Tracking you and your family’s reading progress is easy and quick with the online tracking system. If you wish to track your reading in-person at the library, ask library staff to track things when you visit the library.
Looking for family fun throughout the summer? Various programs are offered for all ages, from pre-schoolers to teens to adults. A sampling of the programs provided are crafting for teens, storytimes, art programs, live music, author visits, reading clubs, and ballroom dance lessons. If you want to attend programs in-person at the library, registration is required for some of our events. Links to registration and full program details can be found at MRLinfo.org/events.
Have you ever wanted to explore the continents of the world? Explore the library’s family fun adventure “Where in the World” Scavenger Hunt. Seek and find the 7 continents throughout MRL in this summer-long scavenger hunt. We feature 4 continent-based themes throughout the course of the summer, so check back often as the hunt changes.
