About the Series » I ♥ Reading in Portland: Pedal Through the Pages

The Portland Public Library and the Portland Public Schools are excited to announce a joint summer reading program for 2017, I Reading in Portland: Pedal Through the Pages. Children throughout the community are encouraged to read about and explore Portland this summer!

The program will run for 8 weeks and sign up at the Portland Public Library begins the week of June 18. Participants will be given a reading log and adventure map. The goal is to read or listen to at least 8 books and to complete at least 8 activities on the adventure map. The adventure map contains suggestions for reading as well as outdoor activities that can be enjoyed by the whole family. There will be a variety of educational and entertaining programs at different Portland Public Library locations!

Children who visit the Library during sign-up will also receive a ticket voucher to a Portland Sea Dogs game! Those children who reach the reading goal and return their logs to the Library will receive a certificate, a book, a coupon from The Gelato Fiasco and a free Kids’ Meal from Subway. They will also have the chance to win a bicycle thanks to the generosity of Portland’s Triangle Lodge and the Maine Masonic Charitable Foundation’s Bikes for Books program.

This year there will also be a component to our program for very young children and their parents/caregivers, Stroll Through Summer Reading. It includes a gameboard of early literacy activities to complete. They include talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing – as they are the five simple and powerful ways you can help your child get ready to read!
