Summer Learning is here!

Make this your...


The Summer Learning Challenge is here! This means reading, playing, doing, and lots of chances for prizes through it all.

Sign up at your local library or online at, opens a new window to be part of this exploring, discovering, playing, experimenting, reading, talking, singing, smiling, laughing, can't-do-it-wrong program that combines the fun of new experiences with library programs and prizes.

This annual, crowd-pleasing program runs until August 30th and is chock full of opportunities for fun and discovery (and prizes!).

Did I mention the prizes?

All the libraries around San Mateo County are participating. That means your favorite libraries and library staff are anxious to see you (and help you win prizes!). Sign up by strolling into your library of choice or by going online to, opens a new window. We'll get you all set up with a reading log and the swag to go with it. Embark upon your summer of discovery--with some navigational tips from library staff--and mark milestones like minutes read, authors discovered, new things tried. Woot!

Libraries will host weekly prize drawings for pretty nifty prizes, including Giants tickets, museum passes, and more. At the end of the program, each library will draw a winner for the $1000 college scholarship.

Of course, it wouldn't be summer without special programs and performances from dawn until dusk, every day of the week, at all the libraries throughout the County. Visit your local library to find out what's happening and join us for discovery and fun.

San Mateo County Libraries are Open for Exploration and we can't wait to see you!
