Visit any MDPLS branch, our Bookmobile or Technobus anytime during the Summer Reading Challenge to register and pick up a reading log. Read or listen to a book for 30 minutes, then complete and submit an entry ticket to enter the drawing.
Prizes include an iPad Mini, Miami Marlins tickets, one-year family memberships to HistoryMiami Museum and the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, a family four-pack of tickets for a Broadway show at the Adrienne Arsht Center and more.
Attend a library program or participate in the #Read30 Social Media Challenge, a Children’s Trust effort to encourage parents to read to their children, for additional chances to win. Simply read a book with your child, then snap a selfie of you, your child and the book and post it on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtags #Read30 and #MDPLS. You may also visit any MDPLS branch and take a selfie with our special #Read30 frame and post it on social media. Show your post to any library staff and receive an additional entry ticket for the prize drawing.
Each week, celebrate with stories, activities, games and prizes. Register at your local library to receive the reading logs. Check the library calendar for free events all summer.
