Summer Reading Programs Charlotte Mecklenburg Library promotes year-round reading and learning, with a special focus on the critical summer months to prevent academic decline. To support literacy and physical activity, the Library offers Summer Break, an annual program encouraging children, teens, and adults to read 20 minutes daily and engage in various learning activities. Participants can register early, create a free online account to track progress, and earn virtual badges and incentives. Completing the program requires 1200 points, with at least 600 from reading. Sign up for Summer Break and receive a coupon for a free Jr. Frosty from Wendy's. The Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Program is a fun and easy way for kids to earn free books. They simply read a designated number of books—whether from the library, borrowed from friends, or purchased at Barnes & Noble—write about their favorite part in our Reading Journal, and bring the completed journal to a Barnes & Noble bookstore. Children can then choose a free book from the selection listed in the Reading Journal and pick it up at a store near them during July and August. 2024/25 School Year Updates Get ready for the 2024/25 school year and purchase your school supplies early.

Then find your school supply lists here, shop the sales, and make sure you have all the supplies in hand by August 12 Extracurriculars We'll be hosting some virtual sessions over the summer to gauge interest in different extracurricular clubs and sports for next year.
