New Mexico State Library

Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program 2015

The New Mexico State Library proudly supports summer reading programs at public libraries throughout the state. As a member of the Collaborative Summer Library Program, NMSL sponsors public libraries membership to join in this national consortium. The 2015 theme is superheroes, with these slogans:

  • Children: Every Hero Has a Story!
  • Teens: Unmask!
  • Adults: Escape the Ordinary

Last summer, New Mexico’s public libraries provided 2,723 events statewide, from Lordsburg to Clayton, from Farmington to Jal. These events were attended by 90,947 people, and led to 627,827 children’s books being checked out. With growing community partnerships, summer reading expands each year, attracting more children and their caregivers to the place where they can obtain quality reading materials through the summer months, free of charge. 


Do you have plans this summer? Head to your local public library to celebrate!

This program is funded with a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, which administers the Library Services and Technology Act.
