Summer Reading


Summer reading is coming! Join the fun with us between June 8th, 2019 and August 10th, 2019 for great programs, prizes and of course, books!

Check out our event calendar for all the exciting events, and subscribe to our email newsletter for a weekly digest.


The Children's Room Summer Reading Program begins on Saturday, June 8th, for everyone from infants to sixth graders! Kids can sign up in the Children's Room to track their reading for prizes. Babies and toddlers earn books and rubber ducks as prizes. Kids in preschool through sixth grade complete reading logs and play a game of chance to determine what prize they win. The prizes will change throughout the summer, and all returned logs will be entered into a raffle for a grand prize. Summer Reading will feature live farm animals, fun crafts, rainbow activities, and more!


This summer we’ll be building rockets, making robots, and solving mysteries during our Teen Summer Reading Program June 8th through August 10th! Complete challenges and earn raffle tickets for a chance at winning one of our grand prizes. Sign up at the Reference Desk to receive your packet, and check out our calendar of events for a list of awesome summer activities. And don’t forget, every time you check out any book or attend a teen library program, you’ll get an instant win scratch ticket for a chance to win a fun prize!
