Children's Summer Reading Programs at the Library

Summer Reading Game at the Library
June 25th - August 24th
Pre-Registration begins June 11, at the Library and on-line.

The Summer Reading Game begins on Monday June 25 and runs through August 24. Our theme this year is "Libraries Rock!"
Join the Reading Game at the Library by putting your name on a Reading Folder. (Folders are kept in the Library.) Read, write the book titles in your folder,
put stickers on the game around the Children's Room, answer questions, and get a prize.
Children who do not read yet play the Game when others read books to them.
Sign up for the program online today!
