Summer Reading 2017

Summer Reading 2017 will run from Tuesday, May 30-Monday, July 31. This year's theme is Reading by Design, and the Library's many Summer programs will – as always – be offered at absolutely no cost to participants! Click here to be taken to a PDF of our Summer Program Guide! Paper copies of the Program Guide are available at the Library and on the Bookmobile.

The 2017 Summer Reading Program will begin May 30!

Our Summer Reading program is for people of all ages — kids, teens, and adults — with prizes awarded in each age group. To get started, pick up a reading log in person at the Library or on the Bookmobile. A third option is to print your reading log from home by accessing them online when the Summer Reading Program begins.

(Please click the link below which corresponds with the age group of the reading log you'd like to print. Additionally, please print one log for each family member who wishes to participate in the Summer Reading Program).

Our children's reading program is for those age newborn-11. Find the Children's Reading Log here.

Our teen reading program is for those ages 12-17. Find the Teen Reading Log here.

Our adult reading program is for those age 18+. Find the Adult Reading Log here.
