2024 Summer Reading Program “Read, Renew, Repeat”

The library is the place to be for Summer Reading fun, prizes, and special events! For our theme, “Read, Renew, Repeat,” we’ll be encouraging summer readers to think about conservation, environmental awareness, and wildlife stewardship.

How does it work? Participants from pre-k to young adult can track their daily reading (no rules, just read!), earn badges and prizes for every 7 days of reading, and then enter monthly raffles for BIGGER prizes! We’ve lined up special programs for the entire summer.

Thank You 2023 Summer Readers!

Our summer reading program “Find Your Voice!” ended on August 26. We had 63 young people participate this year. Events included a music program, crafting, bilingual story times, an author program, and of course, reading and exploring books. Congratulations to Owen, Journey, and Evie, whose names were drawn for the grand prizes. A special thank you goes out to Andy Bauer, Gabrielle Macrae, and Karen Weiss, who donated their time and talents to help provide fun and engaging events at the library. Thank you to Board Member Peggy Thom, who worked hard all year to help plan and manage the program and events. We had a lot of fun; we hope you did too, and can’t wait to see all our readers back next year.
