Mark your calendars! June 1st kicks off our 2020 Summer Reading - Reading Is Sweet program! We have programs for children, teens and adults, along with some amazing prizes! We even will be introducing a new online component this year, through our Summer Reading app - more information on that will be coming later, but for now, check out what we have planned for this year's reading program!
Our summer reading program runs for seven weeks every summer and is a great way to get kids excited about reading! Kids of all ages will enjoy reading whatever books they want at their own pace and winning some great prizes along the way. Our 2020 theme is Reading Is Sweet, and we know you'll all enjoy this delicious program! We have two ways for kids to get involved - either through printed trackers, or our online app! Kids will track the hours they've read, and win great prizes every step of the way! For detailed information, visit our Children's Summer Reading page!
