2017 Summer Reading Starts May 23rd!
"Build a Better World" is the theme for this year's summer reading program and we're looking forward to starting all the fun on May 23rd.  Our reading program is for all children, newborns through those entering 5th grade, is for all reading levels, and is free!  Children earn prizes by reading, or being read to at least 30 minutes a day.  A child can earn a prize each week, and if the child turns in five (5) completed reading sheets, they are eligible for a grand prize and a t-shirt that shows they helped "Build a Better World."
