All-Ages Summer Reading Program

2023 Children’s Summer Reading Program

  Summer is here and we’re so ready for 2023 Summer Reading Program! Each year we challenge all library patrons, but especially the little ones, to keep up on their reading skills throughout the summer. Join us June 1 – August 31 Pick up a reading log in the children’s library for a fun way to track your reading accomplishments this summer.  Prizes will be awarded for every 4 hours of reading, along with a chance to win raffle drawings for fishing, hiking, gardening, and birdwatching sets! Our special summer programs will begin on June 19th and run through August 18th but regular weekly programming will also continue.
