McKinney Summer Reading Program Begins with Kick-Off Events

The McKinney Public Library System is encouraging adults and children alike to beat summer boredom with a good book during their “Reading Gives You Superpowers” summer reading program starting in June.

Kick-off events for the summer reading program will be held at both libraries on June 5. The kick-off event will be held from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Roy & Helen Memorial Library and from 3:30–5 p.m. at the John & Judy Gay Library. Each event will feature a local superheroes truck rodeo where children can explore emergency vehicles from the City of McKinney Police and Fire Departments. Participants will receive a summer reading log, information about library programs and other goodies.

“In some instances, children’s reading skills decline during the summer. Reading programs like those offered at the McKinney Public Libraries are proven to help avoid this summer slide,” said Youth Services Coordinator Michaela Watson.

Readers are encouraged to keep track of their reading in the log, and on August 21, an end-of-summer party means an opportunity to share favorite summer reads. In addition, both McKinney libraries will have several family-friendly programs and events throughout the summer to help encourage a love of reading. A full list of library programs for ages 4 and above is available on the library’s website.
