Summer Reading Program 2017

The Library’s Summer Reading Program is an annual activity
designed to promote and encourage reading throughout the
summer. This year’s theme “Build a Better World” is a reminder for each person to do what they can to make a difference in our world through kindness, respect, and unity. This program is open to everyone, of all ages. In addition to reading, many events and a variety of activities are held daily.
