We’re so excited to have you back in the Library this summer! We’ll still have some virtual events, but we’re adding outdoor programs for maximum summer fun. And, as always, we have plenty of great reading recommendations for you. Grab a book or download an e-Book, join us at one of our events, or reach out for reading recommendations from your librarians. Can’t wait to see you!

We're offering prizes for everyone who completes a set number of challenges in this year's event. To join, you'll want to follow the steps below and sign up at online.

The Middlesex Middle School Reading Ambassadors have selected 14 books you may want to pick up. A huge thank you to the 6th and 7th grade Reading Ambassadors for sharing their favorite books for Summer Reading 2022!


We've gone virtual! You can join this year's challenge by signing up online. Teen Summer Reading is for tweens and teens ages 12-18. Twelve-year-olds may join either the Children or the Teen program.
