Our annual Summer Reading Program is back with fun for all ages! The most valuable rewards kids earn from summer reading are enhanced reading skills and a deeper love for learning. This program encourages all ages to read and allows families to discover new things by participating in weekly programs, completing challenges  and picking up Take-Home Kits. This year’s slogan is “Tails and Tales” and the program runs from June 1 through July 23.

We challenge you to read just 25 minutes each day and track your minutes in Wandoo Reader to help reach our community goal of 100,000 total minutes read this summer. If we meet our goal, the Library will donate to the local food bank.

Log the number of minutes you spent reading or listening from June 1-July 23 and earn prizes. Any reading counts – books, comic books, magazines, you name it! You can also listen to a grown-up read.
Don’t forget, the Library is open so come inside to check out your favorite books! lion
