The 2016 Summer Reading Club For Kids and Teens Starts on June 24

We’re doing things a little bit differently this year to celebrate the opening of the new library. Just like last year, we have a game board. But this year, you have three different choices for how you can fill it out:

1. Read for 30 minutes.
2. Come to a library program or visit a local museum.
3. Complete a activity that we’ll have at the library each week.

You can fill out one square per day, and once you fill out seven squares, you can come back to the library and choose either a book, a small prize, or a chance to win a Grand Prize. You can also choose to donate your prize to charity.

The Summer Reading Club for Kids kicks off on Friday, June 24! We hope to see you then! And stay tuned for more information about the Summer Reading Program For Adults and the Summer Movie Club!
