Summer Reading is not just for kids! Our Summer Reading theme this year is “A Universe of Stories!” The program runs from June 2- August 15.

Pick up a Summer Reading Starter Pack at the Summer Reading Tea on June 2 or at the Circulation Desk starting June 3 to begin your Summer Reading adventure. Starter Packs come with a reading log, book review forms, bookmarks, and a schedule of this summer’s special events.  You may also print reading logs and book review forms from our website. For REVIEW forms click HERE. For READING LOGS click HERE.
