It’s the time of year we’ve all been waiting for…our Summer Reading Program for kids, teens, and adults kicks off on Saturday, June 9! This year’s theme, Reading Takes You Everywhere, is meant to inspire readers to explore new worlds and learn about people, places, and things they might not otherwise encounter.

Building off of our theme, there will be plenty of opportunities to explore, create, and read this summer at the Library! Take a look at our summer issue of Browsing or check out our event calendar to see all of the great summer programs we have planned for kids, teens, and adults.
