Summer Reading

Summer Reading programs draw thousands of visitors of all ages each summer to the hometown branch libraries for touring artistic performances and hands-on learning activities all tied back to the library collection. Themes are selected by the Collaborative Summer Library Program, a multi-state consortium that works “to provide high-quality summer reading program materials for children, teens, and adults at the lowest cost possible for their public libraries” (CSLP).
