Summer Reading

The Library’s annual Summer Reading program runs for six weeks after the school summer vacation begins. Each year there is a different theme for the program and children, teens and adults are all encouraged to read books and attend related programs. Thanks to generous local merchants there are many prizes and give-aways. Every year readers and Summer Reading volunteers make this program a huge success. Don’t miss the fun!
