Summer Reading Program 2019

Our Summer Reading Program theme this year is A Universe of Stories.  Everyone is invited to read, earn prizes, and attend events at the library this summer.

Our TNT (Teen & Tween) Summer Reading Program is for all 6th through 12th graders.

See information about our children's Summer Reading Program (toddlers - 5th grade) here.

Thursday, June 13 is the first day to pick up a reading log and start recording your reading and/or listening.  You can choose to count the number of days you read (you choose how much to read each day) or the amount of time you spend reading. 

Saturday, August 31 is the last day to submit your reading/listening time and receive prizes for reading/listening throughout the summer.

This activity works best with a group of 6 or fewer.

If you have already registered for this event, you have received an email.  Please reply to let us know which time you will attend.  If you have not registered, please email to let us know which time you plan to attend.

If you haven't voted for your choices, you can vote here.
Update: We've chosen the activities for this summer, but we will continue TNT activities this fall, so you can still vote for what you'd like to do for those events.
