This summer the Library’s reading program moves beyond reading:

1. EXPLORE! Children choose something they want to know more about

2. INVESTIGATE! Read books and explore activities, do experiments or find people you can learn from this summer. Write in your journal and bring it to the Library between July 5 and August 2 to receive a prize packet.

3. CREATE! Show off what you have done — make a poster, create a video, write a story, draw a picture, recite a poem, build a model. Make something you will display at the Library for everyone to see. Bring it to the Library between July 19 and August 2 to receive a free paperback book and be entered into a drawing for an iPad Mini.

To register for the summer reading program, visit the Library!
