Summer Reading Program

Note:  This post includes our schedule on April 8.  To see updated information after this time, please see our Summer Reading Program page here.

Our Summer Reading Program theme this year is A Universe of Stories.  Everyone - children, teens, and adults - is invited to read, earn prizes, and attend events at the library this summer.

All children may participate in our children's Summer Reading Program: younger children can listen to books, older children can listen and/or read.

See information about our TNT (Teen & Tween) Summer Reading Program for 6th through 12th graders here.

Friday, June 14 Thursday, June 13 is the first day to pick up a reading log and start recording your reading and/or listening.  You can choose to count the number of days you read (you choose how much to read each day) or the amount of time you spend reading. (Friday was originally the first day, but since the last day of school in Milan Area Schools is now the 13th, you can pick up reading logs beginning on the 13th.)

Saturday, August 31 is the last day to submit your reading/listening time and receive prizes for reading/listening throughout the summer. 

Friday, June 21: Apollo Adventure by Michigan Science Center

Ten hands-on, space-themed science activities will be available between 9:30 and 12:30.  We recommend allowing an hour or longer to move through the activities at your own pace. You may arrive at any time during the event. This event is best for preschoolers through middle schoolers; all ages are welcome.  It will be held in The Center (previously the Senior and Community Activity Center).

Thursday, July 18: Touch a Truck
Our annual Touch a Truck event will be held from 5:00 until 7:00 P.M. during July's Third Thursday.  You'll see a variety of community vehicles, meet the people who drive and work with them, and learn about the jobs they do.  Check back for a list of participants.

Friday, August 9: The Supernatural Intergalactical Summer Reading MAGIC Spectacular by Jeff Wawrzaszek of A2 Magic
This magic show will include several space-themed illusions.  This event will be held at 10:30 A.M. in The Center (previously the Senior and Community Activity Center) and is for all ages (children and teens).
