DoD MWR Summer Reading Program

Read Beyond the Beaten Path is the theme for the DoD-MWR Libraries 2022 summer reading program.

The broad motif of “summer camp at the library” can encompass a world of different summer experiences: from outdoor activities such as hiking, campfires, stories, and s’mores to nature programs, arts and crafts, music, and so much more!

In partnership with iREAD Summer Reading, 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.
