Summer Reading for ALL AGES runs from June 3 - August 25.
Children (Birth - Grade 5)
Read to achieve, attend special library events, volunteer in the community, and earn prizes! Complete all levels of reading and activities to earn small prizes and raffle tickets for a grand prize drawing. Once your levels are complete you can pick out a book to take home! We have lots of special events and activities throughout the summer for kids and families to do. As a part of our "Build a Better World - By Volunteering!" iniative for this summer, we are challenging everyone to volunteer more and to reach our set volunteer hour goal!
Teens (Grades 6-12)
For every 2 hours read, you will earn a raffle ticket to go towards weekly prizes, as well as our fabulous GRAND prizes! More raffle tickets can be earned by participating in a teen program, checking out library materials, writing a book review, submiting a drawing or painting, volunteering in our community AND MORE. As a part of our "Build a Better World - By Volunteering!" iniative for this summer, we are challenging everyone to volunteer more and to reach our set volunteer hour goal!

McMillan Library will hold a summer reading program for adults again this year. Just sign up and keep track of the favorite book you read each week, rather for yourself or to a child. We will have a raffle each week for a gift certificate to Book World, Family Video or Rogers Cinema with a grand prize drawing at the end for a Chamber of Commerce gift certificate, good at many local merchants. As a part of our "Build a Better World - By Volunteering!" iniative this summer, we are challenging everyone to volunteer more and reach a set volunteer hour goal!
This year is our Martian Maker Camp (PDF)! Explore the world of The Martian by Andy Weir. Earn points for prizes by completing projects and tech challenges and by participating in programs.
