2024 Summer Reading Program

A guide on how to participate in the Matas Library's summer reading program.

How to Participate

The reading challenge this year is simple-- read The Ghost Map by Steven Johnson, and then choose your own adventure! There are five adventure tracks available this summer- complete the challenge by reading 3 books in one of the following categories:

Medical mysteries

Health equity

Medical or public health memoirs

Pop epidemiology

Health humanities


There are no required books for any of the adventures, so feel free to pick anything that interests you!  Once you've completed an adventure, let us know by filling out this form! Prizes will be available to those who complete an adventure!

We highly encourage you to check out the books for your reading adventures either from the Matas Library, the Howard Tilton Memorial Library, or your local public library!
