Welcome to Summer Reading 2020!     

June 6th - August 1st

May you discover fabulous things about you, your community and our world!

If you're new to Merced County Library's Summer Reading Program, welcome!   If you are a returning patron, you'll notice that our program is very similar to last year's - except in a new platform.

Everyone is welcome to participate!  There are 3 basic programs:

  • Kids: Ages 0-5 - Read 20 books and earn a book to keep!*
  • Kids: Ages 6-12 - Read 5 books and earn a new book to keep!*
  • Teens & Adults - Read 5 books and earn a new book to keep!*

Once you complete your initial goal, keep reading! You will earn five more drawing tickets every time you read another 5 books (or 20 books for ages 0-5). Visit the Prize List tab to learn more. There will be a grand prize for each program, too!           
*while supplies last.

Summer Reading 2020 is brought to you thanks to the generous contributions of the Friends of the Merced County Library.

Merced County Library is super excited to join libraries in the entire State of California as all embrace First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom's Summer Reading Challenge. The challenge consists of five activities, as described below. Thank you in advance for helping foster a culture of readers!
