Summer Reading 2019:
A Universe of Stories

Summer Reading is a free 8-week program at branches of the Public Library that encourages babies, children, tweens, teens and adults to read (or be read to!) throughout the summer. Reading is important for everyone in the community and a skill that grows with practice throughout a lifetime.

Set your own reading goals, read at your own pace wherever you're most comfortable, and visit the library once each week to collect fun incentive prizes. See our event guide for special events and workshops in our libraries.

Digital Literacy begins with text and extends to the computers, software, interactive forms, and online platforms prevalent in our communities.
