Libraries Rock! 2018 Summer Reading Program
Now through September 1st
The Library can help your child maintain and even improve their reading skills over the summer. We provide a Free Reading Program throughout the summer for children and teens. This program encourages reading through prizes provided by local businesses. The program is self paced and accommodates children and teens of all reading levels.

Infants and toddlers and their parents/caregivers will have fun rhyming and moving with Miss Char. With a focus on repetition, children build their repertoire each week of rhymes, both old and new.
