Read ME

A statewide summer reading program with a Maine twist

“It was great to experience the statewide effort. We knew we were part of a larger group. It was impressive that the sixteen counties were involved.” - Participating Librarian

2019 recommending author Tess Gerritsen

Read ME is a statewide program presented in partnership with Maine State Library that gets Maine’s adults all reading the same books—by Maine authors and recommended by a Maine author. The recommending author for summer 2019 is Tess Gerritsen!


Goals

  • Connect Maine’s adult reading community through shared reading experiences.
  • Support libraries in their work to provide quality adult summer reading initiatives.
  • Elevate upcoming Maine authors.
