The Seattle Public Library invites teens and adults to read for 2013 Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program

The Seattle Public Library's 2013 Summer Reading Program kicks off Monday, June 3. The annual program, which continues through Saturday, Aug. 31, encourages everyone to read during the summer. This year's program features the theme "Expanding Your Horizons."


Teens can sign up online and earn badges and create their own avatar. The Library is also hosting fun programs for teens all summer long.


Adults can also join the fun by signing up online, earning badges and tracking books read. Need something to read? Let the Summer Reading Navigator help find the perfect book.


Looking for more book suggestions? Librarians will be available from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, June 4 on the Library's Facebook page. Share a book title or two that you liked, and librarians will offer suggestions on what to read next.


The Summer Reading Program also includes hundreds of free programs for children and families at Library locations. For more information, call the Library at 206-386-4636 or Ask a Librarian.


The 2013 Summer Reading Program is sponsored by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, Safeco Insurance Foundation, U.S. Bank, the Burke Museum, and the Space Needle.
