Summer Reading

Summer Reading 2020

This year our summer reading program is going to look a little different.

Instead of in person programs, we are going to be holding online programs and distributing take home kits with prizes. We have fun for all ages planned.

For Children Birth to 4th grade, ask for a summer reading kit.

In order to pick up a kit, parents tell us the ages of their child(ren) and pick up the kits along with any books held. The kits are sorted by grade level.

Teens and Tweens will receive activity kits and when completed their names will be entered into a drawing at the end of the program. (see above for pick up instructions)

The adults are not going to be left out of the fun. There will be weekly drawings for adults who check out items.

We are have an online scavenger hunt! Scavenger Hunt 1

We are open!

To all our McCord Patrons,

Thank you for continuing to work with us during all these changes. We have good news! On July 20th McCord Memorial Library will reopen.

Due to the state mandate we have updated browsing rules

Please wear a mask or face covering:

Unless under the age of 2 or unable to wear a mask due to a medical condition

We have masks available if you forgot yours at home

We have provided floor markers to help maintain social distancing while browsing

Please return all books in the outdoor book drop or in the bin

Please be patient with us

We are working to keep our staff and patrons safe and that may mean slower service

We are offering take home kits in lieu of programs for all Children and Teens

Check out our website for the most up to date information.

Thank you,

McCord Library Staff
