Summer Reading Donations

If you own or work for a local business and would be interested in supporting Summer Reading at the Meridian Library District by donating prizes, please contact audra@mld.org.

Each summer, we serve over 4000 children, teens, and adults through our Summer Reading programs. Kids that read during the summer are more likely to keep the reading achievement they gained during the previous school year. We love being able to reward their hard work with prizes from the community, and we appreciate your help!

child running finger over text in a picture book “There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.”    -Author, Frank Serafini

Changes in the world have brought public libraries to a place where sometimes desired use conflicts with actual use. By that I mean libraries were once thought of as quiet spaces for reading and are now bustling and busy spaces with many different uses - programs, computer access, readers’ advisory and more. Did you know that it wasn’t until the turn of the 20th Century that children were even permitted in public libraries?
