Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program

Need encouragement to read during the summer months. Sign up at your local library, set a reading goal, and your reward will be a free book. The library is also lousy with films, arts, crafts, presentations, and enough book-related shenanigans to keep the kids satisfied until the next school year. Go online for a schedule of events. Free.
