We are pleased to offer our 2020 Summer Reading Programs from June 29 - August 23!

This year all programs will be run online. There will be two programs for children, one for teens and one for adults. 
Magician Jonathan Blair will kick off the youth summer reading program on Friday, June 26.
 

Although the library buildings are closed to the public right now, we are still running virtual programs remotely. Please visit our library calendar to see what is being offered. You can also sign up for our monthly newsletter and we will email you the latest information once a month. 

This summer Miss Debbie's storytimes will be themed along with the youth summer reading programs. There will be links to downloadable templates for activities available along with the Storytime Activities video every Thursday throughout the summer reading program. As a special treat, Miss Debbie will be offering Grab & Go activity bags every other week to those who register though our library calendar. 

The library offers access to digital ebooks through Overdrive, Hoopla, Cloud Library, and more, click here for a full list  We are also offering curbside service while the building is closed to the public. You can place holds for materials here: online catalog or you can use the MPPL mobile app. After your holds are pulled (usually the next business day) you will be contacted to set up a pick up time and can stop by to get your materials at that time, or you can stop by the library after your holds come in, give us a call to let us know you are outside, and we will bag your items and bring them out to you.

If you would like some reading suggestions we have book lists available here: Good Reads. Our local teens have been providing reviews of books they have read and you can check the out here: YA Book ReviewsYou can also call the library to speak wth a Reference Librarian and we would be happy to work with you to find some books you might like through curated recommendations.

We look forward to an exciting summer of reading with you!
