Just like always, the Mendon Public Library will be offering a Summer Reading Program (SRP) this summer. Our “Tails & Tales” Summer Reading Program will run from June 23 – August 13, 2021. Kids, teens, and adults will have reading incentives to keep them engaged in reading throughout the summer.  A full listing of special programs is available Mendon Public Library Summer Reading Program 2021.  Sign ups for those programs will start June 16, 2021.

Read & Win! Overview

Starting June 23, kids up to 12 years old can request their reading log and instructions, Weekly Bingo Board, and Weekly Grab & Go Story Bag.  Throughout the summer, kids record their reading in the reading log.  A completed reading log entitles them to a handy book light!  In addition, they can win a button each week they complete the Bingo Board.   Finally, they can pick up a Grab & Go Story Kit each week, complete with story, snack, and craft.  Return the book and bag, but, keep everything else in the Grab & Go Story Kit!

Likewise, Teens can enter a drawing for one of four $25 Visa cards by submitting simple Teen Book Review entries for each book they read.  Teens completing the weekly Bingo Board will be entered to win a different prize.  Teen Book Kits will be available each week for teens to take home.  The bags will be available for check out and include a book, snack, and craft. Return the book and bag, but, keep everything else in the Grab & Go Book Kit.

Adults earn a chance for a $50 HFMP Gift Card by submitting simple Adult Book Review entries for each book they read.  Adults completing the weekly Bingo Board will be entered to win a different prize.  Adult Book Kits will also be available for checkout.  The bags will include a book, snack, and craft.   Return the book and bag, but, keep everything else in the Grab & Go Book Kit.
