Summer Reading for youth of all ages 2.5 - 18

We are pleased to be offering free in-person and virtual programs for kids this summer as part of our Tales with Tails Summer Reading theme.  Kids will be embarking on animal adventures through stories, crafts, outdoor games, yoga and more. Kids will log their summer reading at home and earn prizes!  This can be done  virtually from home with ReadSquared or in-person.  ReadSquared also has games and missions kids can complete from home.  We are asking kids to read 15 minutes a day this summer.  Stop by the library to get new books or use our ebook collections and download for free with your library card.
