July’s Virtual Lineup



Teenspace Instagram


In the summer months, we showcase Pittsburgh as a City of Readers through our Summer Reading Program – and this year is no different! Reading at least five books, magazines, eBooks or audiobooks during the summer helps to keep brains of all ages sharp and prepares children and teens to go back to school ready to learn.

Due to safety reasons related to COVID-19, we are unable to offer prizes as we have in past years. Instead get involved by creating your own Summer Reading experiences and imagine your very own story!

Join CLP’s Summer Reading 2020 program in Beanstack and log your books online or use the Beanstalk Tracker App! Cross the finish line after reading 5 books – but help us be a City of Readers and read as much as you like all summer long!
