Want to keep your children active this summer? Encourage them to join our Summer Reading Club! Research shows that children who read daily over the summer are more likely to maintain, and even improve, their reading skills.

Children of ALL ages (including preschoolers) may participate in Summer Reading Club by reading independently, reading with others, or being read to by a friend or family member.

Starting June 17th!  There are prizes to be earned during your reading adventure, including a ticket to the End-of-Summer Bash, a fantastic, fun party!  Every time you check out a book, you earn a ticket for a chance to win big prizes.  Registration is required.  Events do not require a library card.  Click here for a printable sheet of the events listed below or check the Event Calendar.
