The program runs through August 8 and offers some exciting rewards:

    Children who meet their reading goals AND visit the library to check in between May 30 and August 8 will each receive a free book and certificate!

    Free Entertainment!
    Participants are invited to attend our exciting weekly programs. Please check the schedule below or call your local branch for more information.
