Summer Reading Programs 2020

This year's Summer Reading theme is "Imagine your Story!" Our programs will look a little different this year but we have a ton of fun things planned for youths and adults!

Summer Reading activities begin June 1st


We are asking you to challenge yourself this summer. Set a goal to read 10 books! 25 books! You pick the right number for you. Or, make a goal to help a neighbor once a week!

Maybe, make lunch for your little brother or sister every Monday! Help with more chores at home!

You can even have reading goals AND help at home. Whatever it is, do your best to finish your goals or challenges.

What You Can Do!

  • Track your challenges and goals on the log we deliver to you along the bus route (until June 9th)!

  • Beginning June 1st, pick up Summer Reading materials and SWAG at your bus stop or at the library during your Take Out appointment.

  • Read! Help your family! Do some good deeds!

  • In September, let us know what you accomplished this summer and you'll get your prize!

The first week of June (6/1-6/5), first full week of July (7/6-7/10), and the first week of August (8/3-8/7), look for us on the “W” and “SN” bus routes. It is also possible to come to the library and use our Library Take Out services to pick up your craft kits and activities.
