Summer Reading Program 2019
Our Summer Reading Program theme this year is A Universe of Stories. Everyone - children, teens, and adults - is invited to read, earn prizes, and attend events at the library this summer.
All children may participate in our children's Summer Reading Program: younger children can listen to books, older children can listen and/or read.
See information about our TNT (Teen & Tween) Summer Reading Program for 6th through 12th graders here.
