Celebrate summer with Washoe County Library System's community-wide Summer Reading Program. This year's theme, A Universe of Stories, coincides with NASA's 60 years of achievement and its celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo moon landing.
Children and teens who complete the program, earning at least 600 points by reading books and attending library events, will receive a free book and book bag.
As we kick off the 2019 Summer Reading Program, you are invited to attend a launch party at one of our branches. (See our calendar of events for dates and times.) There will be a universe of games and refreshments, and time to sign up for the program.
This four-week series will introduce teens and adults to the logical, sequential nature of coding. Discover what coding is and what coding can do through a variety of group activities and hands-on exercises.
Every week is different and builds on the previous class, so plan on attending all four sessions. Must be 13 years or older. Registration is required.
