This year our Summer Reading Program is going online! It’s easy to use and convenient for parents, teens, kids, and adult readers on the go!
The components of the program have not changed. Participants still read, visit the library and complete reading activities. If you are a parent or caregiver, you can create profiles for children in your care and track their reading program progress.
