Summer Reading 2018 at DoD-MWR libraries, Reading Takes You Everywhere, is not merely about travel. It is about how, through reading, one can explore, discover, and experience people, places, and things that one would not normally encounter. Exploring this theme includes reading fiction and nonfiction that is reality-based, but it also includes reading stories based purely on imagination.

Patrons will read about life in other dimensions, on other planets, and other times— people, places, and things that might be outside one’s reach or outside one’s comfort zone.

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.
