Will the Summer Library Program be affected by the pandemic?

FAQ: Will the Summer Library Program be affected by the pandemic?


Due to the pandemic, the library's 2022 Summer Program will be modified for the safety of patrons and staff:

  • Summer Reading Club will be based on the Beanstack app. Download the app, create an account, and write book reviews! Starting July 1, kids can show their book reviews to library staff (minimum of two reviews) at any location for a free book. Keep on reading and writing reviews, and starting August 1, kids may pick up a second free book. Contact any MCPL location for a hand-picked stack of books or reading suggestions for your child.

  • Grab & Go activities will continue to be offered at all MCPL locations. We will provide full instructions, supplemental activities and most supplies. 

  • Outdoor events will be scheduled instead of large indoor gatherings. We are working with community partners to plan events in parks and other open spaces. Watch our events webpage for updates.

  • Our summer brochure has been transformed into an activity booklet. These will be available at all MCPL locations starting June 1.

Further details will be posted in the near future; watch for updates!
