  • WHAT? The Summer Reading Program is a free series of programs with fun, games, crafts and storytelling all around a theme that changes each year.
  • WHO? All children ages 2 to 17 in Cleveland County. And now adults too!
  • WHERE? At the Cleveland County Memorial Library in Shelby and Spangler Branch Library in Lawndale.
  • WHEN? the KICKOFF is on June 13th (at CCML)! Weekly activities begin the 3rd week of June.
  • WHY? National studies have shown that children who participate in Summer Reading Programs maintain or increase their reading skills. Children who do not participate can lose as much as a half-year of their reading level by the time they return to school in the fall. This year nearly 1,000 children and their families attended the Summer Reading Program.
