Summer Reading

Final month of Summer Reading – last day to sign-up is July 24th and program ends July 31st. 

Each year, from June through July, we host Summer Reading. We have programs for all ages. 

The 2021 Summer Reading Theme is “Tails and Tales.” The possibilities are endless!

You won’t want to miss our Summer STEM program for ages 6-11! Unlike the rest of the year, starting June 15th we have a new activity every single week through the end of July! Pick them up at the Front Circulation Desk while supplies last.

Craft instructions will be available on our website and on our YouTube Channel.
