It’s time to rock the library during our annual Summer Reading Program! Attend weekly special events at all library locations featuring live performances, science, animals, arts and storytelling. Sign up for technology camps and classes to create video games, mix music, build robots, harness solar power and much more. Grab a Reading & Activity Calendar and cross off each day that you attend a library event/ technology class or read a book.

You can also participate in our summer reading program online – register with Beanstack to track your activities and the books you read this summer. Earn virtual badges and enter online contests! The child who earns the most badges with Beanstack will win a special prize!

Turn in your completed Calendar or show your Beanstack completion badge between July 23 and August 3 to receive a goody bag and be entered into our End of Summer Grand Prize Drawing at 5 locations across the county on Saturday, August 4, 2 p.m. You can win prizes like bicycles, tickets to local attractions, a staycation and more! Child must be present to win.
