Summer Reading



Portland Library's 2016 Summer
Reading Program for Children

The Portland Library’s 2016 Summer Reading Program has officially ended. We will have final results available here soon. In the meantime, if you need to print a Summer Reading log from home for school, you can visit the "On Your Mark, Get Set, READ!" link HERE (grades 0-5) or "Get in the Game, READ!" link HERE (grades 6-12) and log into your account. After selecting the Books tab, click on "Print Log" to the right in order to print a complete list. 


Congratulations and thanks to everyone who took part in the Summer Reading program this year. You read over 400,000 minutes at last count, and donated 190 cans of pet food to the Humane Society of Connecticut! 

Thanks to the Friends of the Portland Library for funding our summer programming.
