The theme of this year's Summer Reading Program is Tails & Tales!
The summer reading program will run from June 16 to August 25.
Every Wednesday through the Summer Reading Program, children can join us for Read to the Librarian, where children can talk to a librarian about a book they have read or listened to and earn a prize! When possible, Read to the Librarian will be held outside. Children are encouraged to follow current CDC guidelines on masking and social distancing. You can register your child for our Summer Reading Program online by clicking here.
