Why Should You Participate in the Summer Reading Program?
The Mesa County Libraries’ Summer Reading Program is for everyone – pre-readers, children, teens and adults can all participate. For students on summer break, continuing to read throughout the summer is a proven way to keep up and continue to develop those oh-so-important literacy and learning skills. Signing up is simple and participating is a breeze – grab your reading log from any Mesa County Libraries location starting May 26th and follow along with a bingo-style game.
