Summer Reading Program

"Reading Takes You Everywhere" this Summer!

Our annual Summer Reading Program will run from:

June 9th - July 31st, 2018. 

Come into the library or sign up online at any time to participate in this year's Summer Reading Program. Sign-ups begin on Saturday, June 9th.

There are many events for children, teens, and their families throughout the summer - free to attend craft events, movies, and a variety of other activities every week. All of our summer reading events are listed on their own page, and as part of the general calendar of events

How the Summer Reading Program Works

Anyone, of any age, can participate in the Summer Reading Program.

■ Participants choose to keep track of their reading in one of two ways -  either on a traditional paper reading log, or online

■ Everyone who completes 10 hours of reading throughout the summer will receive a prize. 

■ Raffle prizes will be pulled the first week of August. Participants earn a raffle tickets by turning in their completed reading log by Tuesday, July 31st.
