Summer Reading 2021

All ages are invited to join us for this year’s Summer Reading Program, Tails and Tales!

Registration begins Monday, June 7th, with the program running June 14th through August 6th. As part of this year’s theme, we’ll feature fun stories, activities, and events all centered on the animal kingdom and set to inspire reading and a love of learning among all ages. Children, teens, and adults are invited to participate by downloading Beanstack through the app or desktop version. If you don’t already have an account, register and select Murrysville Community Library as your home library. Interested participants can also contact the library to sign up.

Through Beanstack, participants can track their reading, take part in activity challenges, earn virtual badges, and enter to win prizes. Pre-readers, children who are not yet reading on their own, can share in reading with their grown-up, and independent readers, older children through adults, can read at their own pace. Adults and Teens have their own program too! To see all the Adult and Teen programs, please check out our Beanstack and download this flyer.

Children can check in at the library each week to pick up a small incentive as they progress through the program. Children who reach their reading goal by August 5th can stop by the library to pick up a Summer Prize Bag, Participation Certificate, and invitation to the library’s End of Summer Reading Party on August 6th featuring the Pittsburgh Zoomobile, StageRight! Princesses, balloon animals, and more.

Join in the fun from home, at the library, or from wherever you are! Check the library’s online summer calendar and summer newsletter for more information about both in-person and virtual activities happening each week.
