Summer Reading Program

2020 Summer Reading Program Updates
The library has made some changes to our Summer Reading Program, so that if social distancing or staying at home is the “new normal” through the summer, everyone can still participate.
- Patrons of ALL AGES can register and log online, by phone, or by email.
- Summer Reading t-shirts and other prizes will be awarded at the end of the program.
- Virtual library programs will be available through our Facebook, YouTube, and Zoom accounts, but large gatherings are on hold for now.
