One of MidPointe’s most highly attended activities, the Summer Reading Program -- this year themed “Libraries Rock!” --  encourages kids, teens and adults to visit their nearest MidPointe library, check out books or audiobooks, keep track of their reading/listening and receive prizes for their accomplishments. Participants can sign up for a free library card if they do not already have one. Special guests, activities and music are a popular part of the program.
