Join McChord, Grandstaff and Book Patch Children’s libraries for an amazing summer filled with reading, fun, prizes and a party. Pick up your registration bags for the 2022 Summer Reading Program, “Read Beyond the Beaten Path” with registration opening Tuesday, June 21.
Once you’ve registered at your library of choice, each time you complete 10 hours of reading (up to 30 hours), you’ll receive a prize. Once you’ve read 30 hours, you’ll be invited to a grand finale party Thursday, Aug. 18, 4–6 p.m. at the MWR Fest Tent that rewards those who complete the program.
For a fun kick-off event, teens ages 13–17 can enjoy outdoor adventure laser tag Saturday, June 25, 11 a.m.–2 p.m. outside Grandstaff Library on the west lawn.
But that’s just for starters — you’re also invited to attend weekly events at your library with entertainment for all ages.
McChord Library’s summer of fun events are at 4 p.m. each Tuesday June 28–Aug. 9, and Grandstaff and Book Patch Children’s libraries fun and activities are held at 4 every Thursday June 30–Aug. 11.

The grand finale party includes music, costumed guests, games, prizes and more! See you soon to start your summer reading fun!
Why summer reading is importantThe benefits of summer reading are clear. National research finds that students who participate in library summer reading programs scored higher on reading achievement tests at the beginning of the next school year than those who did not participate. Even adults who join the summer reading program benefit by reading to their prereaders, showing tots how fun reading can be, plus reading books for their own pleasure.
