Milwaukee Public Library summer reading program kicks off today

Summer is almost here – and so is your child’s opportunity to be a Super Reader!

The Milwaukee Public Library kicks off  their annual Super Reader Summer Reading Program today. The program encourages children to read or be read to every day during the summer, while tracking reading progress in a folder and earning incentives like free food and free admission to Milwaukee attractions.

Super Readers who complete the program will be rewarded with a free book; those who complete by July 31 earn the chance to be recognized at the Aug. 18 Brewers game.

Interested families are invited to Sign-Up Saturday on May 18 at the Downtown Public Library, 814 W. Wisconsin Ave., from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The library plans to have a record year in 2013, and hopes that this summer’s program will reach 23,000 children and teens ages 0-18. The program has increased by 46 percent since 2008. For more information, visit
