Build a Better World

Join our summer reading program. Choose an avatar, gain power and level up while counting up your minutes. By reading just 20 minutes a day you will be avoiding the "Summer Slide" and on your way to being prepared for school in the fall!


 The best part ---you will be helping to get more children's books into the library!

For every book read, $1.00 will be donated by our Friends of the Bridgeport Public Library to buy new children’s books.  The more you read the bigger the build of books for the  children’s collection!

Books, magazines, graphic novels and audio books...it all counts toward summer reading! Go at your own pace and track the number of minutes you read all summer long by signing into your account. Use Overdrive, Zinio and Hoopla on your smart device!

Open to ages 12-18. 

Check out our events page for summer activities to enjoy!
