Mercer County Library System’s Summer Reading Program Begins June 24

Excitement and fun awaits those who visit Mercer County Library System branches to participate in this year's Summer Reading Program for youth: "A Universe of Stories!"  Check out great books, register for a reading log, earn weekly prizes and attend spectacular library programs. 


Events are offered to engage children and young adults in inspired and innovative ways that promote reading, library enjoyment and the joys of lifelong learning. Creative arts, performances, music, science and story themed programs are free and open to children of all ages and abilities.


Dates are: June 24 - August 10, 2019.  Special launch events will occur around the week of June 24. Teens may participate online via the library's website as well as in person for events and prizes. 


"When a child picks up a book, they are given an amazing opportunity to learn, expand their imaginations and improve their literacy skills," said Ellen Brown, Mercer County Library Director. "These are things that are especially important during the summer months." County Executive Brian M. Hughes "encourages all families and children to take part in this year's summer reading program, which will help them continue to grow and learn while on a break from the classroom."

Make the library your family community destination for the summer! We have an ambitious and diverse agenda of activities, which can be found at Local Friends of the Library groups, associations and advisory committees generously provide funding for year-round youth programming. 


Events may require pre-registration with a valid MCLS library card and are intended to fulfill the needs of individuals. Branches are located in member municipalities: Ewing, Hickory Corner (East Windsor), Hightstown, Hollowbrook Community Center (Ewing), Hopewell, Lawrence, Robbinsville, Twin Rivers and West Windsor.  Groups may contact their local branch regarding potential opportunities for outreach to meet their needs.
