Important Notices Regarding Our Summer Reading Programs:

  • Summer Reading Programs are about reading and earning prizes -- summer activities and programs are separate from the reading programs and do not require participation in the reading programs.
  • Our Summer Reading Programs are at your pace. As soon as you finish your first reading level, come in for your prizes and start on your next one.  We'll be ready for you whenever it works for your family's schedule.  No need to worry any more about being out of town and missing out on your prizes.  Last day to pick up prizes is August 11.
