2013 Summer Reading

The MBLC has created materials to assist you in promoting your summer reading program.  If you have any materials that you've developed that you'd like to share with other librarians, email Celeste Bruno and they'll be posted here.

The MBLC also promotes summer reading through banner ads on social media and in major newspaper online sites and funds the online component of summer reading called ReadsinMa.org.

Statewide summer reading is sponsored by local libraries, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, the Massachusetts Library System, and the Boston Bruins, with federal funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

MLS has several online resources with great summer reading tips and information:
