Libraries Rock

The Summer Reading Program theme for this year is “Libraries Rock!” We will have a lot of music in our events this June & July! Here’s what’s coming up this summer:

Kids ages 0-11 can sign up for Summer Reading Program now at the library or on our website.

No sign-up necessary for young adults (ages 12-19) to participate in our Summer Reading Program! When a young adult checks out a book or comes to a Summer Reading Event, they get a scratch off ticket! (Limit two tickets per person per day.) Most scratch tickets are prize winners. The ones that are not winners are entered to win the grand prize! We have a variety of prizes, including fidget cubes, small speakers, and earbuds.

Adults, complete the stops on our Summer Reading World Tour for prizes! Watch our website for fun summer activities! Watch movies, make crafts, and listen to music.
