Summer reading is a yearly program that offers weekly prizes for reading, weekly entertainment for readers and families, crafts and activities, a pool party for those who finish the program on time, and a grand prize raffle. Each year has a different theme shared by libraries nationwide. All programs are free and open to everyone.
Summer reading programs provide activities for kids during the out-of-school season and help prevent the "summer slide" (the documented decline in reading proficiency among students who do not reading during the summer).
The 2020 Summer Reading theme is Imagine Your Story, exploring themes of imagination, fairy tales, and fantasy.
Registration begins the week of June 8.
