2022 Summer Reading Program

Camp out with a good book.  Open to all ages!

Camp fire sing-along, smells of s’mores and stories under the stars are just a few activities that await those who participate in the 2022 Summer Reading Program. This year’s theme is Read Beyond the Beaten Path. Library patrons young and old are encouraged to get outdoors, try new things, explore nature, and be adventurous.

Get ready, get set, and sign up for this year’s summer reading program! Participants can win prizes for reaching their reading goals. In addition to reading great books, library patrons can participate in exciting programs. During the next two months, we will host a range of free in person and virtual activities for children, teens, and adults to encourage and support a love of reading.
