Summer Reading

Library's Summer Reading Program



Summer Reading for Children

Join us this summer on a quest unlike any other, since the World of Stories is falling apart. Each week adventurers will embark on a new genre world full of challenges and obstacles to overcome. With each challenge completed, adventurers will earn special abilities, and help to repair the World of Stories.

This virtual program is geared toward children in grades K-6, however anyone interested is welcome to participate. Check out our Official Summer Reading Facebook Page for more information.
