The Library has launched its annual Summer Reading Program!

This fun morning will kick off eight weeks of reading and activities for youth and will introduce families to this year's summer reading theme: Oceans of Possibilities. Sign up online here, or pick up a sticker log in Youth Services. Children can track their reading this summer while earning prizes along the way.
