2017 Summer Reading Program: “Build a Better World”
Our summer reading program is for children who are age 1 through those who have just completed grade 6.
Participants will receive a bag, a bookmark, and a reading record form on which they will list the books they read or the time they spend reading during the summer. Parents of pre-school children will record the titles of books that they read to their children.
Special programs will be offered on Wednesdays and Saturdays in June and July. Please check the children’s section of the library’s website and posters in the children’s department for information about the programs. All programs are free. Some events might require registration.
