Summer Reading Club

June kicks off the library's annual Summer Reading Clubs.

The children's club has a different theme each year. This year's theme, Every Hero Has a Story, encourages children to explore what it means to be a hero, from comic book superheroes to community heroes in their own neighborhoods.  Read books, visit your library, earn prizes.  Children can participate in two ways: by signing up to read independently or by participating in the Super Readers program with their childcare, summer school, or daycare group.

Teens and adults have their own club.  Teens going into grade 6 and up join adults in reading books - each book read is a chance to win prizes in weekly prize drawings throughout the summer.  Teens and adults can participate in two ways: in person at one of  our libraries or online where you can create an account, record your reading, and see what others are reading and enjoying.
