We’re joining the nation-wide Summer of Space celebrations with the 2019 Summer Reading Program, A Universe of Stories. We’re hosting free fun activities beginning June 5, and also offering reading challenges for babies, kids, teens, and adults.

Read. Read. Read.

There’s a Summer Reading Challenge for every age. Earn prizes with our mobile-friendly software. Families can enjoy the ease of registering and updating multiple readers at the same time. 

  • Register any time from June 5 to August 5.
  • Track your reading from June 5 to August 5.

Try something new

Reading is one of many ways we learn. Engage with special programs and performers to meet new people, think new thoughts and sample new skills.

Follow your bliss

Summer is a unique season when many people, particularly those in school, have extra unstructured time to explore their own interests. The Library applauds self-directed discovery, and has a wealth of materials and friendly helpers to support explorers on their journeys.

Say thank you

Readers, this city has your back. We could not offer the programs and prizes without the support of our sponsors. Please be sure to let them know you appreciate them.

If your business or organization is interested in sponsoring a 2019 summer reading event or prizes, we’d be happy to have your support. Please contact: Theresa Faris, 512-218-7002

It matters

Summertime learning, particularly through self-directed reading, is an important way to combat summer slide. Help your kids maintain–or even improve–their hard-won reading skills with regular visits to the library this summer. And model reading by reading to them, and letting them see you read, too–you may enjoy our adult program.
