    Summer Reading

    McClure Summer Reading program capitalizes on student choice in reading. Play Maverick Summer Book Bingo!

    Keep track of books you read from June 17 through Sept. 4, 2019 by writing the title and getting adult initials in the matching square. Book titles may be used only once per card, and only one BINGO card per student.

    Also, did you know students can check out library books over the summer. Beginning June 17, all library books will have a due date of September 30, 2019.

    And wait, there's more! The McClure Library will be open on 4 days over the summer (2 days in July and 2 days in August). Check this page again for actual dates!
