All Ages Summer Reading Challenge

You can also attend library programs to earn points, and this summer is absolutely packed with outdoor concerts, magic shows, animals, circus acts, video game tournaments, crafts, and more. Make sure to join us and read the summer away, starting with our Medieval Block Party in June and ending with our Space Block Party in August!
