This year, the library's offering Summer Reading Programs for ALL AGES! Our theme - Imagine Your Story - explores myths, folktales and fairy tales.
We'll be using an online platform called Beanstack, where you can register, log your reading and other activities, and see the rewards you've earned. Logging for the whole family is a breeze! To find out more and sign up, click here.
