Summer Reading Challenge 2022

June 4 – August 13


Sign up for the Miami-Dade Public Library System’s annual Summer Reading Challenge for a chance to win great prizes!

Read for fun and prizes this summer! Every 30 minutes you spend reading or listening to a book earns you an entry into a prize drawing at the end of the challenge. The more you read, the greater your chances of winning!  eBooks, eAudiobooks, comic books, magazines, reading to your child – all reading counts. Search the Library’s catalog to find great titles – all you need is a library card. Don't have one? Sign up for an eCard to get immediate access to our online library.

You can earn more chances to win by attending any library program. Every event you attend gets you an additional entry into the drawing. Just make sure to add it to your online reading and activity log.

Everyone who signs up for the Summer Reading Challenge is also eligible to receive two complimentary tickets to select 2022 Miami Marlins games. You will receive the redemption instructions after you sign up.

Avoid the Summer Slide

Children and teens who aren't actively reading or participating in other learning activities during the summer can succumb to the "summer slide," the loss of knowledge and achievement gains made during the school year.

Reading for just 20 minutes a day, listening to books and exploring new types of materials like magazines can help prevent summer learning loss and set kids up for success in the new school year. Best of all, all these materials are available for free with your library card!

Parents and caregivers can also help stem the summer slide by reading themselves, setting a good example for children who tend to read more when they see adults in their lives doing so.

Parents can also help their children stay engaged and continue learning through the MDPLS Homework Help & Tutoring Program. Free tutoring sessions with certified teachers will be available throughout the summer in person at select branches on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. from June 11 through August 13 and online on Wednesdays from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. from June 15 through August 10. Tutoring is available in reading, math and science. For more information, visit www.mdpls.org/tutor.
