Here at the Mission Branch (and at many other San Francisco Public Library branches) there will be three summer reading programs happening, covering all age groups. You'll notice the common theme this summer is water!
Adult Summer Reading
The summer reading program isn't just for kids this year. The Adult Summer Reading Program is a competition between the two sides of the city -- Oceanside branches and Bayside branches -- to see which side of town reads the most this summer! Adults can sign up for the Adult Summer Reading Program here at the Mission Branch beginning Friday, June 4th. As participants read books or listen to audiobooks, they can check off the number of books read in the sign-up binder at their library. Watch the water gauge at your local library rise for each book read. More info here.
