Summer Reading Programs

June 11 to August 17

We are pleased to offer summer reading programs for a variety of readers:

• Read to Me – for babies, toddlers, and children who are not reading on their own yet
• Readers – for children who can read on their own (primarily ages 6-11)
Both groups can be read to or listen to audiobooks. Children receive a free book for each 90 minute reading level they complete. Gently used children’s books are still needed for this purpose, especially board books and beginning readers.



Full rules and details for each program are available at the library along with reading logs.
