Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program – Not just for kids!

Summer is a great time to let your community know what the library has to offer!

Libraries can use summer as a showcase to engage and connect with the community by offering programs for:

  • Adults
  • Youth
  • Families
  • Parents
  • Community-at-large (intergenerational)
  • Summer Reading at New York Libraries [DLD] – Access to information, resources, research, downloadable materials and online registration tools brought to you by the Division of Library Development.
    • Studies show that library summer reading programs will raise student learning levels and help prevent learning losses during the summer months.
Every member library is required to submit an online Summer Reading Program Final Report. This information is sent to the Division of Library Development and assists your library with needed statistics for the Member Library Annual Report.
