Free Library of Philadelphia Summer Reading Program:
2019 Summer of Wonder Read and Explore Banner


Sign up for Summer of Wonder at your neighborhood library or online for fun craft and maker activities, storytimes and book clubs, gaming and STEM programs, and more to help your mind stay curious and active all summer long!

Reading at least 20 minutes each day during the summer can prevent learning loss?

The goal of the Summer of Wonder program is to encourage all Philadelphians to read for fun and to explore learning opportunities during the summer months. Summer of Wonder also helps children and teens combat “summer slide”, so that they can return to school in the fall ready to learn!

From June 3 through August 3, children and teens from birth to 12th grade can sign up at their neighborhood library. Get inspired with fun activity ideas and programs, earn prizes, and see what you can discover, read, and make this summer! And because kids shouldn’t have all the fun, adults can dive into Summer of Wonder too! Adults can participate at select neighborhood libraries, where there will be special raffles for reading, attending library events, and more.

Online Summer of Wonder for all ages runs June 1 through August 31. Sign up online and earn badges by tracking minutes read and completing fun Discovery Path activities themed around STEAM, literacy, and exploration. You can also select reading materials from School District of Philadelphia suggested booklists, submit book reviews, and explore more in-depth themed learning guides. Every time you earn a badge, you will be entered into a weekly raffle with prizes for each age group, as well as be entered into a special grand finale prize raffle that will take place at the end of summer!
