Summer Reading Program 2014

Join our free Summer Reading Program for all ages. We are hosting over 100 programs including performances, activities, workshops, demonstrations, movies and more at the Main Library and all Branches! And don’t miss our Rosemary Davis Animal Farm Series and of course, be sure to READ!

5. If you reach our summer goal of 1500 minutes (that’s about 25 minutes each day), you’ll receive two more prizes (one at 1000 minutes and another once you’ve reached the goal).
