Kids Summer Adventure 2023

June 1 - August 31

How to Start Your Summer Adventure

Pick up your free copy of the Adventure Journal from any of our library branches! You can also print a copy from home. Use the journal to keep track of reading and fun activities.

The Kids Summer Adventure is for kids ages 0-12 years. You do not have to be reading on your own to participate. Children ages 0-5 can participate with parents’ help. Kids who have just graduated from 5th grade have the choice of participating in the Kids or Teen Summer Adventure.

Engagement and activity are the core of this year’s summer challenge. Programs at each branch will promote literacy development, honor cultural heritage, and create a love of books and reading.

The focus of Summer Adventure is to make reading fun, prevent learning loss over the summer, and close the opportunity gap through targeted outreach to partner agencies. Kids can track their reading progress using the Adventure Journal.

Reading, writing, playing, singing, and making up stories are ways that children build literacy skills. Completing the Adventure Journal challenges together as a family provides a variety of ways to engage with reading.

MCFL Summer Adventure provides strategic targeted book giveaways in coordination with partner agencies. Friends of the Marin County Library have generously sponsored the giveaway books.
