Friday, June 14th,  is the official kickoff for this year’s Summer Reading Program.  The theme this year  – A Universe of Stories – is in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing in July, 1969. 

Our Summer Reading Program will run from June 14th thru August 23rd.  We have programs for Birth-PreK, K – 6th grade, and 6th grade and up. 

The more kids read, the more prizes they can win!  It is simple to sign up –

stop by the Children’s Department and ask for a reading log anytime beginning June 11th.

they read (no need to record titles)
