Summer Reading 2020
"Imagine Your Story"

This year's theme is "Imagine Your Story" and we're imagining you having a great time wherever you are this summer!

From June 1 through July 25, challenge yourself to play, read, and have fun!

Activities:

Each week, we'll post some fun things for you to do on your own or with your family, according to the week's theme. On Mondays, we'll share cool crafts, games, and other activities to interest all ages. On Tuesdays, we'll post ideas for great books (or two, or three!) for you to read. Then, look for our Family Friday posts, when we'll share a project that will involve everyone in some weekend fun. Do as many activities as you like, and share your selfies with us!

Pick up a paper version (once a week) from our Summer Reading box in the front of the Library or find more information here:
