Summer Reading Program

2021 Family & Army MWR Library Summer Reading Program
Reading Colors Your World.
June – September
Sign up at your local installation to win prizes!

 

Library programs will include activities, graphics, crafts, reading lists, incentives, and much more for children, teens, and adults.

The benefits of summer reading are clear. National research finds that students who participate in library summer reading programs scored higher on reading achievement tests at the beginning of the next school year than those who did not participate. Our mission at DoD-MWR Libraries is to provide the resources and experiences to bridge this summer gap, while inspiring literacy and life-long learning.

For more information, please contact your installation library or email us.

For 32 years, United Through Reading has connected military families through the power of shared story-time. Whether separated due to deployment, temporary duty assignment, or stationed away from their loved ones, service members can always be available for story-time with a United Through Reading recording. At over 200 locations around the world and on their free, mobile reading App, service members can make a recording anytime, anywhere.

United Through Reading recordings are not only a great way to stay connected and involved with the children in your life, but also help to build literacy skills in military children. Each recording comes with a free book, allowing the child to read along with their service member.

The free and secure United Through Reading mobile app has 10+ e-books preloaded so  recordings can be made the moment it is downloaded. After uploading the recording, request  the complimentary copy of the book. Continue to access e-books, request a book directly from United Through Reading, or use books from your own library to build a recorded story library right in the app, conveniently available to access whenever the child wants to enjoy a story. 

This summer, United Through Reading is proud to sponsor the Family & MWR Summer Reading Program. After program registration, download the United Through Reading app. Visit the library to receive your free first book and make your recording onsite at the summer library story station.
