Our Kids Summer Reading Program lasts for 8 weeks and is full of fun activities, crafts, and challenges! Each week has a different focus that ties into our main theme, Tails and Tales. Some themes include Unusual Creatures, Wild Symphony, and Who Would Win. Each week kids are encouraged to read books of their choice, watch interesting videos, take silly quizzes, and make some really cool craft projects! All summer long kids who are registered for our Summer Reading Program can visit the library and get a prize each week for participating! All activity prompts, challenges, and reading logs are online on Beanstack. Crafts will be available in our Curbside Shed which is located near the Library’s main entrance.
