The McKinney Public Library System reminds parents and caregivers of children that reading is a great summer activity that lets your kids expand their minds and enjoy adventure. 

Various reading programs are under way in which children can log their reading hours and earn prizes. In addition, fun activities are planned at McKinney libraries for kids of all ages.
