2020 SUMMER READING PROGRAM

SUMMER READING FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY

Our "Imagine Your Story" summer reading program begins on June 29. Our program will look a little different than in previous years, but participants still have the opportunity to log minutes read, earn badges, and earn tickets for prizes while reading and enjoying books throughout the summer.

GMPL believes your health and safety are one of our top priorities. We are taking the highest precautions against the spread of COVID-19, so you can enjoy summer reading safely.
