DoD Summer Reading ProgramThe 2020 DoD MWR Libraries Summer Reading Program invited participants to “Dig Deeper: Read, Investigate, Discover.” The program was primarily held virtually, although many libraries were still able to have events that allowed for social distancing or provided take-home activity kits to encourage learning at home. Nearly 200 installations held reading programs, drawing over 43,000 readers to log over 38 million minutes – the equivalent of 72 years of reading time!
