It's no secret that we love summer. And why not? Iced coffee, ice cream, and Summer Reading at the library! Read on to learn more about this year's summer reading program for kids, plus a week's worth of fun activities.
The Children's Room has planned a summer of fun! Our programs might look a little different this year (oh, 2020!), but with old favorites returning and new programs debuting, we have a feeling you're still going to love them.

And best of all? Every minute you read will help you earn raffle tickets for a chance to win awesome prizes at the end of the summer. That's right: Summer Reading 2020 is here !

Let our Children's librarians explain how it's going to work this year:

And what better way to kickoff Summer Reading than with a fun, fantastic family event? Jungle Jim is taking over our Facebook LIVE on Saturday, June 20 at 1:00 p.m.
An incredible live journey with balloons and magic , Jungle Jim will be hosting an interactive and energetic program, with a huge balloon finale (we love balloons, so you know we're counting down the days until Saturday). We hope to see you over on Facebook to usher in a season of excitement, fun, and, of course, reading.
