2017 Summer Reading Program

Are you ready for summertime fun at the library? This year’s theme is “Reading by Design” and is inspired by the creativity of authors, illustrators, builders, inventors, artists, architects, and everyone who makes our world a more interesting, livable, accessible, and beautiful place. We hope it inspires you to explore your own creativity and design new worlds for yourself and your community.

The Library invites everyone to participate in the annual Summer Reading Program – from infants to teens to adults. Sign up at one of our library locations to track your family’s reading.

Reading during the summer is essential for children and teens to help maintain their reading skills and to prevent “the summer slide”. Children learn by modeling or watching their families, so have a great time reading together!
