Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program

June 10 – August 3, 2019

Blast off to a universe of stories with the Summer Reading Program! This all-ages program is a great way to earn prizes just for reading.

It’s easy! Just read whatever you want, and then stop by the Youth Services desk to record the number of hours you spent reading. Watch as the hours build and your chances to win prizes increase. The last day to record your reading hours and pick up prizes is Saturday, August 3, 2019.

There are special family events on Thursday mornings at 10:00 AM beginning June 20.
