MARINE CORPS LOGISTICS BASE BARSTOW, Calif. - Opportunities to travel the world are at everyone’s fingertips, especially when it’s as simple as opening a book.

To encourage children and adults to read throughout the summer, the library on Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow kicked off its annual summer reading program, June 17.

Each year, more than 250 military libraries participate in the Department of Defense’s summer reading program. This marks the fourth year the DOD has supported the program.

This year’s theme revolves around traveling and is aptly titled, “Have Book – Will Travel.”

More than 75 people from the MCLB Barstow community attended the event at the McTureous Hall library and signed up for the free program.
