SUMMER READING CHALLENGE KICKOFF
Our Summer Reading Challenge starts July 1 and will run through July 31. Early registration has already opened.
This year's challenge theme is All Together Now, and the library is the perfect place to come together and create shared experiences. Spend the summer reading, learning, and spreading kindness with us! Learn more by visiting our Summer Reading Challenge webpage. We're celebrating with a series of kickoff parties at our branches and will have fun events throughout the summer.
