Summer Reading 2020

This year our summer reading program is going to look a little different.

Instead of in person programs, we are going to be holding online programs and distributing take home kits with prizes. We have fun for all ages planned.

For Children Birth to 4th grade, ask for a summer reading kit.

In order to pick up a kit, parents tell us the ages of their child(ren) and pick up the kits along with any books held. The kits are sorted by grade level.

Teens and Tweens will receive activity kits and when completed their names will be entered into a drawing at the end of the program. (see above for pick up instructions)

The adults are not going to be left out of the fun. There will be weekly drawings for adults who check out items.

We are also going to have an online scavenger hunt! Stay tuned for more.
