Madison Public Library’s WE READ card game has returned to offer families a summer-long reading experience! Every card and deck is fully bilingual in English and Spanish. The two kinds of cards, “read” and “play,” offer learning activities and reading-based awards for players.

Children can earn specialty prizes each week by filling out Share Your Voice prompts at library desks. While prizes are not tied to the decks, the card game is a great way to practice reading.

When picking up a WE READ card deck, you can also grab a free WE READ tote bag from any Madison Public Library location or the Dream Bus, and at Parks Alive! events. Madison Public Library offers a walk-through video explaining how to pick up your cards and play the game. Visit to watch.

WE READ is made possible thanks to support from Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation, Madison Public Library Foundation, Friends of the Madison Public Library, Dick Goldberg & Lisa Munro, and David Wood & Jane Doughty.
