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.
