This Summer... Libraries Rocked!

Chalk up another successful year for MidPointe Library’s Summer Reading Program for all ages!

The decades-long tradition at each MidPointe location ran from June 1 through July 31.

Thanks to you, Summer Reading’s total participation rate -- as determined by computer log-ins -- was a whopping 13,290!

That’s a 35 percent increase over 2017 numbers! Wow!

But -- as the commercials say -- wait, there’s more...

A total of 22,632 of you attended the special programs we presented at our locations : Middletown, West Chester, Trenton and Monroe! Live animals, music, puppets, movies and more were just a few of the offerings.

That’s a 20 percent increase over last year’s program attendance! We’re overjoyed!

The good times just kept rolling...

In keeping with this year’s theme, “Libraries Rock!,” we  presented free, family-friendly live music concerts featuring local talent at our MidPointe locations.

We increased our outreach to local day-cares, hosted two summer lunch sites and visited other summer lunch locations in our colorful “Library On Wheels,” the Bookmobile.

That’s a pretty good summer, made possible by the generosity and community spirit of our 2018 sponsor, the Journal-News. We thank them for their support.

Looking forward to serving you this fall and beyond,

Your MidPointe Library
