"Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books."

Every year, we host a Summer Reading Program, and every child and teen is welcome to join! Summer Reading Program activities include family storytimes, special programs and performers, and events and programs just for teens. Every child and teen who registers for Summer Reading gets a reading log to record what they read (or what is read to them, for the little ones) during the summer. All program finishers earn a free reward book! Other rewards for program finishers include coupons for summer fun activities, and a special discount at Oaks Park. Details below.

Important Dates for Summer Reading 2014. Sign up June 1-August 1. Claim Prizes starting July 14. Last day August 31. Passes good at Oaks Park August 6-24
