Teen Summer Reading Program

Readers of all ages are invited to dive into the ocean depths this summer as MCPL presents "Oceans of Possibilities" during our Summer Reading Program. This program will provide educational and fun activities designed to improve and maintain reading skills.

The 2022 Summer Reading Program is FREE for all ages (0-18) and participants will be grouped into age categories for grand prize drawings (0-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-11, and teens). Adults may read to children not yet able to read.

Join us all summer for under the sea themed programs!

Teen Advisory Council

TAC meets monthly over pizza to plan programs for teens and help select teen materials.

The Teen Advisory Council's goal is to promote library services at Metcalfe County Public Library by:

  • Advising, planning, and implementing teen programs
  • Recommending books, movies, and magazines for the YA collection
  • Volunteering in the library doing useful and creative tasks
  • Creating an inviting teen area in the library
