Help turn your child into a life-long reader by joining the Library’s Summer and Winter Reading Programs. Library Reading Programs help improve and keep your child’s reading skills up during vacation periods. Each year we change our programs theme, but the activities, programs, prizes, and books are always a part of the fun!

Our 2017 program was Reading by Design and was a creative and inventive Summer Reading program all about construction, design, and engineering. We had over 1300 participants and almost 900 finishers!
