Summer Reading Program Fun!

Or register in person at the library.

The programs start June 7. Everyone loves animals and stories, so get ready for the exciting "Tails and Tales" ("Colas y Cuentos") activities for kids and adults this summer. Keep track of the minutes you read. You will earn prizes by reading books, audiobooks, magazines, or have someone read to you. It all counts toward prizes.

READsquared is the online program that we are using this year for registration, to keep a reading log, and to enjoy some programs. You can opt to use paper records instead.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and our website for more information!

Too young to read?

Participate in the Summer Reading Program by having someone read to you! Or watch our library online videos, such as Baby Songs.
Don't let the kids have all the fun!

Games and prizes ... and more!
