Summer Reading Programs

Summer is our favorite time of the year and we are super excited to jump into our next summer reading program! Here at the Mount Olive Public Library, we strive to create a strong summer reading program that will engage and excite your children and teens, as well as encourage them to keep reading all summer long. As they read throughout the summer, we have three different reading logs that will help you keep track of their progress and can be turned in for weekly prizes and raffle entries. The more you read the more chances for awesome prizes. The logs are broken down by age/grade ranges from ages 0-5years old, Kindergarten-5th grade & Teens. Each log is designed to work with the particular age range and promote literacy skills appropriate for their level.

We are very excited to announce that this year's Summer Reading Program is:
