The program will run June 15 - September 5. Any amount of time spent reading books during that time counts toward the reading program. There are no restrictions on the types of books that any age group reads, even for teens and adults. Kids earn prizes for every 100 minutes read! Teens and adults earn an entry into the grand prize drawing for every 100 minutes read.

Event Registration

Summer Reading events for kids will be held via Zoom this year! Families will have the chance to join us at 2 different times each week: Mondays at 11 am or Thursdays at 6 pm. During the events, kids will have lots of opportunity to interact with library staff, just like in-person programs! Each week this summer we will cover different topics, including: magical creatures, fables, fairy tales and mythology. Kids will learn how to creatively use imagination by turning ordinary household items into props for imaginary play inside and outside.

To attend the event, you must register for day you would like to attend, (see bottom of page). A confirmation will be sent to your email account providing details on how to join the event.
