Summer Reading Program 2018


Our Summer Reading Program theme this year is Libraries Rock!

You are invited to read and/or listen to books, earn prizes, and attend programs at the library this summer. 

READ

Pick up a reading log from the library to keep track of your reading and listening.
• Read books, ebooks, or magazines.
• Read to yourself or to someone else.
• Listen to audiobooks.
• Listen to someone else reading to you.

You may choose to count how many hours you read or how many days you read.
Earn prizes as you reach reading goals throughout the summer. 

Wednesday, June 13 is the first day to pick up reading logs and begin reading and/or listening to audiobooks or to someone read to you.
