Youth Summer Reading Event Guide

Imagine your Story this summer as we welcome you to our virtual summer reading program! Our summer reading program is designed to get children excited about books and libraries so they will continue to improve their reading skills over the summer. We hope that both you and your family enjoy reading together and that you will discover some of the treasures of your library.

To help you participate from home, all five library branches will have Imagine Your Story activity bags available for your child. Imagine Your Story activity bags will contain an activity book, incentive tickets, and some of the materials to be used for our virtual programs. Make sure to stop by your closest branch any time after June 8th to pick up your activity bag, while supplies last.
