Ready, Set, Summer Reading


Summer's almost here and many are looking forward to warmer temperatures, vacationing, beaches, parks, picnics, barbecues, the list goes on and on. But wait, don't forget to read!

Every year the library hosts our summer reading program for children, teens, and adults, spreading the joy of reading during the lazy hazy days of summer. On Thursday, June 6th the Mosholu Library will host a Summer Reading Kick Off for children and parents. On this date children can register for summer reading, pick up summer book lists and get free summer program information and enjoy the musical sounds of Presley and Melody.

Here's a peek at what you can look forward to this summer at the Mosholu Library for children.

  • Storytime programs 3 times a week: Bring your toddlers ages 18-36 months to cool off at the library for stories, songs, and rhymes and meet other toddlers and parents in the neighborhood on Thursday mornings. Children ages 4 and up can enjoy read alouds on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.
  • Global Partners Jr. Program: Looking for a fun and educational activity for your tween this summer? The Global Partners Jr. Program is your answer. This is an online exchange program that connects kids in New York City with their peers around the world. They also learn about improving the environment and their communities. Program meets 3 times a week for children ages 9-12. Registration is required.
  • Summer Reading Website: Check out Log your summer books, reading times, rate books, design avatars and more. Just another way to make summer reading fun.
