Reading Takes You EverywhereYouth Summer Reading Program: Reading Takes You Everywhere

Friday, June 1, 2018-Saturday, August 4, 2018

Stop by the library to sign up and get your reading log and start your journey! Traveling doesn't always happen physically. Reading allows you to travel to places you might not otherwise ever get to experience and to meet people you might never get to meet in real life. Let your imagination take you to faraway places. Track the time you spend reading this summer and for every level you complete, travel to new places on our map, win prizes, candy, books, coupons, and raffle tickets! While you're here, don't forget to check out some of our great games, activities, and entertainment that will be going on all summer. Sign-up starts at the Block Party on Friday, June 1st, and reading logs can be redeemed for prizes through Saturday, August 4th. See a Youth Librarian for all the super cool details.
