Adult Summer Reading 2017 – Read by Design

In the hearts and minds of your Library staff, June 1 means only one thing — Summer Reading starts today!

YOU are invited, throughout all of June and July, to Read by Design. Follow the blueprint, choose which books fit your plans, and submit your bids to win weekly and grand prizes.

Three phases of construction have been drafted on your behalf, and for each you decide whether to take the Do-It-Yourself track or to take the added challenge of the Master Class track. For each round, you’ll be adding a brick, a window, and a shingle to our MPPL Dream House, so be sure to check in regularly to see what Mount Prospect can build together.

Summer Reading Audio DisplayCategories are designed to give you maximum flexibility, and you choose your own materials for each stage of the build. Keep in mind that you have a crew eager to help! We’ll be posting options here throughout the summer, and we’re always happy to offer personalized suggestions. Peruse our displays, ask at the desk, or e-mail readers@mppl.org with questions or for advice on any step. NEW this year: join our Goodreads group and compare notes with others about books that made the grade for each category. If you are social, follow (and use) hashtags #mpplsummer17 and #mpplreads to add more tools to the summer reading toolbox.

Ready to break ground? Register online and print out your log OR visit the Fiction/AV/Teen Services desk on the second floor to enroll. Let’s build that Dream House together!
