Summer Reading

Summer Reading is returning to paper this year! With so many suffering from digital burnout, we’re offering a break from screens and taking Summer Reading offline! Stop in to the library any time beginning on Saturday, June 12th and pick up a reading log.

Summer Reading 2021 begins on Saturday, June 12th and runs through Saturday, August 7th. Completed logs must be returned to the library by August 7th to qualify for prizes.

Can’t make it to the library? Complete our online sign up form and we’ll email you a link to print your own.
