Summer Reading Program 2019

Welcome to Summer Reading Program 2019!

A Universe of Stories:

The program this year will run from June 12 through July  31.


Introducing: Adult & Teen Summer Reading Program 2019!

Participants will be asked to read books and write small reviews.

Each review will enter them in a drawing for their choice of prizes ranging between water bottles, books, and craft kits. Books read with “far-out” themes, will earn double entries!

Book review sheets will be at the circulation desk.

Children’s Summer Reading Program dates are:

June 12, 19, 26 & July 10, 17, 24 & 31.

This year’s program will focus on the spaces around us and the spaces far from us! The kids will have a blast learning about astronauts, planets, and where they fit into all of it.

Special visitors, this summer, will include the Blank Park Zoo on July 11 at 11:00AM and the Grout Museum at 5:30PM on July 25!
