Gearing Up for the Summer Reading Program
The summer reading program is less than a month away. Fun activities and special events are being planned for all ages, birth to senior citizens. Youth, “Fizz Boom Read,” and teens, “Spark a Reaction,” will explore a wide range of science-related topics while the Adults will examine “Literary Elements.” Two very special events, a Magic Show and a Family Read-in-the-Park, will be offered in July. Other activities will occur throughout the program.

Registration begins June 3. The program runs until Aug 2.
