Discover, explore, and read at your library and online this summer!

From June 12 through August 4, sign up in person at your neighborhood library where you will find programs for all ages, as well as a Summer of Wonder Passport full of themed activities for children and teens, and raffles for teens and adults.

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!

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! Summer of Wonder also plays an integral part in our Read by 4th campaign, a citywide effort of 50 organizations, public and private, large and small, convened and managed by the Free Library of Philadelphia, aiming to have 97% of students in Philadelphia entering the 4th grade at reading level by 2020. This is the largest effort of its kind in the city of Philadelphia. Learn more at freelibrary.org/readby4th.
