Our Children’s Summer Reading Program begins in a month and we are excited! We are busy planning lots of fun events for you to participate in that celebrate space and “A Universe of Stories“!

Registration begins on Monday, June 24 at 10 am. Children from birth to those entering fifth grade can stop by the library to sign up and collect a goodie bag just for registering. Win prizes for letting us know how much you read this summer! Children will also receive raffle tickets for a chance at one of our 12 Grand Prize Raffle Baskets by registering, checking out books, and attending library programs.

We can’t wait to have you join us for our fun events this summer! (Events with an asterisk require registration.)
