Logo for Read Around Town summer reading program.Read Around Town

The theme for this year's summer reading program is 'Read Around Town'. There are many of the same in-library groups as other years WITH THE ADDITION of drop-in programs out in the community that are still to be announced. What a great way to maintain reading skills over the summer. There will be weekly themes, crafts and hands-on activities to enhance literacy skills and have fun.

All the information and registration forms can be found on the Read Around Town page.
