Summer Reading Program

The 2013 Summer Reading Program ended on August 31. During the summer, the Library hosted more than 250 free programs all over the city.

Children, teens and adults all joined in the fun. They read over 188,000 books, participated in programs, earned bages and shared their favorite books, movies and music in the Library’s catalog.


You can still check out our summer Book Navigator to find a good book!

Thank you for participating and making this year's program a big hit. Check back in late spring 2014 to learn about the Library's 2014 Summer Reading Program.

Book Domino World Record



The Seattle Public Library launched the 2013 Summer Reading Program by setting a new world record for the longest book domino chain. Want to own a piece of the world record? Look for the books we used in this record-setting event at an upcoming Friends of the Library book sale!
