The Library’s Summer Reading Program encourages kids, teens, and adults to read throughout the summer. Prizes and programs make it extra fun and exciting, but our main goal is for everyone to love reading.
This year’s theme, A Universe of Stories, has inspired some really wonderful outer-space themed programs that you won’t want to miss!
